Well, keep the faith, because Sunday, March 8, Daylight Savings Time arrives and it will be lighter longer. This brings us closer to warm weather as there are only two weeks to spring, so start eagerly counting down.
The two despicable individuals that destroyed our Memorial Wreath and desecrated our flag, are still pending charges. I will keep you advised as to the progress on this case.
As you probably have noticed, the collapsed building of the Woodhaven Richmond Hill Volunteer Ambulance Corps continues to be an eyesore. The Woodhaven Business Improvement District requested of the owner and his lawyer that they clean the front of the building and remove the posters and graffiti, as well as maintain the scaffolding lights. Hopefully they will take some responsibility and take care of these problems.
As I requested, many icy spots were reported to our office. We are trying diligently to notify these negligent property owners that they clean their sidewalks of ice and salt these areas. Please continue to report these locations to us and please be careful walking.
Also, don’t go out in this weather. Have your groceries delivered to your home or order dinner from one of our Jamaica Avenue restaurants. There are three supermarkets that deliver groceries. They are Fine Fare Supermarket (718-846-0840), C-Town (718-296-6994), and Compare (718-296-3627).
Mark your calendars for the 102nd Precinct Community Council meeting, where you can speak to our Deputy Inspector Sautner and officers directly. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17, at the Woodhaven Library, 85-41 Forest Parkway.
May God bless our leaders, armed forces, disabled veterans, NYPD and our America.
