Hempstead Town Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby has canceled her town hall meeting tonight in Freeport because of a disaster response forum being held at the same time in Freeport High School by Nassau County Legis. Dave Denenberg (D-Merrick).

Goosby’s annual forum was scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Freeport Memorial Library. An alternate date has not been selected yet, town officials said.

Denenberg, in partnership with local civic associations, will present his forum at 7 p.m. in the high school (50 S. Brookside Ave.).
