At the October 17 BVCA Membership Meeting, our featured guest speaker was N.Y. State Senator Michael Venditto. He spoke with us about things he supported in Albany, including tax rebates, grants for the Village and other measures that benefited Amityville. There was also a discussion about the need for an elevator at our L.I.R.R. station. The senator assured us that he is contact with the railroad and knows their objection (insufficient ridership). However, he will continue to work with us towards that goal. His concerns and efforts are truly appreciated.
