Jerry Landsberg secured his fourth full term as a Great Neck Water Pollution Control District commissioner on Tuesday night, securing 111 votes in an uncontested race.

Landsberg, who serves with Commissioners Patty Katz and Steven Reiter, previously said  he hoped to continue working to implement projects that would keep taxes low and help the environment at the sewer district.

In the past, he also called for a modern grease-receiving station to generate revenue for the district, upgrading of an anaerobic digester and adding a third microturbine to help the district generate most of its own electricity.

In an interview on Wednesday, Landsberg said that he hopes to continue and see the completion of these projects, since they help residents, the environment, and the sewer district itself.

“I’m really very excited about the prospect of what we’re going to be doing” Landsberg said.

The water pollution control district sanitizes wastewater, manages the sewage system and serves more than 25,000 residents within unincorporated areas, the villages of Great Neck, Saddle Rock and Kensington, and parts of Thomaston, Great Neck Plaza and Manhasset.

Landsberg joined the Great Neck Water Pollution Control District as a commissioner on Sept. 4, 2007, when he was appointed by the North Hempstead Town Board to fill a vacancy created by former Commissioner David Laurie’s resignation.

Before his appointment, Landsberg was a trustee for eight years, police commissioner, public works commissioner and deputy mayor and acting mayor of Kensington.

Landsberg also operated Richland Optical Laboraties, which specialized in the fabrication of lenses, for more than 30 years, and London Optical, a chain of local retail stores.
