The Plandome Heights Civic Association held its annual meeting and Meet the Candidates event on Oct. 18 at the Port Washington Yacht Club. Addressing the 60-plus audience of members and guests were County Executive Laura Curran and Town of North Hempstead Supervisor candidates, Jennifer DeSena and Wayne Wink.
The candidates for town supervisor discussed their priorities if elected, as well as how they would manage the pandemic, their vision of how to revitalize Plandome Road including the sewer project and reform of the building department, their position on opting out of cannabis sales, and how they would maintain Plandome Pond Park.
Curran discussed her priorities if re-elected, as well as the status of the pandemic, taxes, cannabis, and resiliency plans from the effects of climate change.
The county executive also provided information on Nassau County’s new septic system replacement program for residents and small businesses – Septic Environmental Program to Improve Cleanliness.
Nassau County is offering grants up to $20,000 to install state-of-the-art nitrogen reducing septic systems.
