Group to discuss hydrofracking, sewage plants

The newly formed Nassau County Coalition of Civic Associations will install eight regional directors — while it tries to fill one remaining vacancy — during a ceremony Tuesday night.

The meeting will be held at 7:30 in the Lido Beach Town Park, on 630 Lido Blvd. in Lido Beach. The meeting is open to the public.

Following the installation of the officers, coalition members will discuss Nassau County’s proposal to hire a private operator to manage the county’s sewage treatment plants at Cedar Creek, Bay Park and Glen Cove and talk about hydrofracking. The meeting will then be open for any new business the membership would like the coalition to address.

In January, Claudia Borecky formed the Nassau Coalition of Civic Associations, a nonpartisan coalition of more than 60 civic associations, to address issues that affect the county. The coalition will be divided into nine regions throughout the county to correlate with state assembly lines. Each region will elect a director to its executive board, she has said.

Borecky said civic associations from communities in Region 2 currently have no representation: Massapequa, Massapequa Park, North Massapequa, North Wantagh, South Farmingdale and Plainedge.
