After 22 years on the job, a member of the Village of Lake Success’ administration staff has decided to call it a career.
Janet Carman, a valued member of the village’s roster, retired earlier this month. Prior to her retirement, Carman had served as secretary to the village’s golf commission, planning board, and building department.
Despite spending more than two decades employed by the village, Carman says she never really felt like she was working.
“I found the things I loved doing,” said Carman. “I felt like I got to come in and got to see all my friends and my family. I got to socialize and I got to be a part of the community of Great Neck.”
“I just loved being here and it’s not in my head that I left,” she added, “so you will still be seeing me around.”
During the Board of Trustees meeting Monday, Mayor Adam Hoffman dedicated a proclamation to Carman for her 22 years of service to the village.
He said she is retiring from a “dedicated, outstanding career” and offered her best wishes on her retirement on behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Village of Lake Success.
