Mayoka Announces Two Initiatives For May 22 Meeting

Filed under: News |

I AM RESUBMITTING FOR THE THIRD TIME, A RESOLUTION TO HIRE A FULL-TIME DIRECTOR OF MARITIME SERVICES.

 The purpose is to hire Ed Carr as the full-time Director of Maritime Services. Ed Carr’s extensive Maritime experience coupled with his superior Educational accomplishments make him the ideal candidate for the position. He will be able to provide necessary safety services and enhance the outreach to the entire boating community.

 I AM SUBMITTING AN AMENDED BOND REFUNDING RESOLUTION TO SAVE THE RESIDENTS OF HUNTINGTON ADDITIONAL MONEY.

 I am currently working with the Interim Comptroller to amend the Bond Refunding resolution in order to save the residents more money than originally proposed.

 The new resolution will address the following:

 1)      Reduce the proposed issuance of Bonding from 24 million dollars to match closer with the debt proposed to be retired of 23.36 million dollars.

 2)      Establish a strategic financial plan to maximize the savings to the town through a thorough review and reallocation of proposed bond refunding maturities.

3)      Establish a savings plan so as to allocate the savings to benefit the taxpayers through reduced issuance of debt or reduced spending in each respective year.

 “I am disappointed in the comments made by my democrat colleagues but look forward to working with them and keeping focused on the task at hand of saving money for all the residents of Huntington”. 

The comments that Mr. Mayoka is referring to was from a Town Hall issued press release called “Petrone, Cuthbertson, Berland Slam Republican Minority Over Failure to Vote on Bond Refinancing”. It should be available on the Town website.

  1. We have the Coast guard. We have Harbor masters. We have Seatow. We had a police boat but that is gone now. Northport has an excellent boat and crew. We do not need another meddling bureaucrat. The boating community does well enough alone.

  2. DomM, this is not a meddling bureaucrat. This postion is to fill Harry Acker’s job since he retired. The department is adrift, and needs a full time supervisor. The Boating Council weighed-in, and they want this. A lot of mistakes are being made without a director, causing wasted taxpayer money.

  3. The article did not say anything about refilling an open position, did it? Acker’s name is still listed. Who is doing his job now? If no one then the TOH must be held accountable. I object to additional bureaucracy which is why I said what I said. List the mistakes and wasted money. Then address the TOH for an answer.
