From the Desk of Mayor Paul Ehrbar

Letter to the Editor:

I was quite disappointed while reading comments made by the East Williston Mayor and members of the East Williston Board at their last public meeting as described in the Williston Times. Reporting that the Williston Park Board of Trustees refused an offer by Senator Martins to mediate a settlement regarding the ongoing water rate dispute is completely false. This never happened! To bring the Senator, a good friend to both Villages into this discussion is outrageous, inappropriate and unconscionable! For the EW Mayor and Board to continually attack both me personally, and the Williston Park Village Board, serves no purpose, if East Williston is sincere about wanting to settle this issue. It appears that the EW Board is running a public relations campaign with inaccurate comments and mischaracterizing statements in order to convince their constituents that they must build a water plant. All should be reminded that East Williston sued the Village of Williston Park on two occasions. Once for Williston Park not having a rate hearing/rate study and a second time because the Williston Park had a rate hearing/ study (ironic). The courts upheld the WP position on the current rate yet the EW Board continues to question the approved, established rate. A similar situation took place in a dispute over water rates between the Village of Plandome and Manhasset Lakeville Water District. It is my understanding that once the court ruled in favor of the Manhasset Lakeville rate, both entities accepted the ruling and have moved on.  Manhasset Lakeville does not provide any water related services to Plandome, just water at the court established rate. On the other hand, in order to bring closure, and with hopes of moving on, besides providing water to East Williston, the Williston Park Board has offered a number of water related services to East Williston.

Even if the cost of building a water plant in East Williston meets projected costs, which seems unlikely, in the long run, their residents will be saddled with water rates far exceeding those currently being charged by Williston Park. If their plan comes to fruition it will quickly become obvious that operating a water plant requires ongoing costs and more effort than just turning on a spigot.

While the EW Board continues to indicate a willingness to negotiate, their comments and actions indicate otherwise. They have not yet responded in writing to a letter sent to them over six weeks ago. They have also been asked to provide an agenda for such a meeting and to date that has not happened.

It is time to stop the finger pointing and negative comments. This type of behavior only confuses the facts and has the potential of creating unnecessary animosity between the Villages, a disservice to all residents.

Sign Up Instructions for Notification Email's

              The Village has decided to  implement a new program in an attempt to keep our residents informed of events and meetings that are occurring in the Village throughout the year. This is a voluntary program  that will allow the Village to provide notification  whenever necessary  to participating  residents in a fast and  efficient  way . While events, whether routine, special or of an emergency nature  are regularly  placed on our web page, we would like to expand the notification process.  In order to reach as many residents as possible, in a short period of time, it has been decided that an email system be established to accomplish  this goal. For all those wanting to participate, send an  email to notifications@villageofwillistonpark.org. By doing so, the Village will add that email address to our contact list. If an individual has more than one email address we request that each address be sent separately from the email address that you would like on our Village list. That will allow staff to easily put the sending email on our contact list. Whenever a new event or document is posted to the Web site those on the Village contact list have an opportunity to receive a copy of that posting in their personal email box, automatically. While it won't be necessary to visit the Village Web site to receive the important information being sent, we encourage all to continue visiting the site as much of the information located there is standard and informational yet not of a nature that needs to be sent out.  If any resident, after enrolling in the program decides to discontinue this service their email address can  easily be removed from the Village list by sending a follow up email to the same address (notifications@villageofwillistonpark.org). While  every attempt will be made to reach as many of our residents as possible, we ask all to pass this information and email address on to friends and neighbors who may not be aware of the program, yet would like to participate. Please note that the aforementioned email address is to be used for the stated purpose only, as this will be a dedicated email address. For other communications with the Village, please use the other already established email address.
