Massapequa Park is an incorporated village in the Town of Oyster Bay on the South Shore of Long Island in Nassau County. The village has a population of 17,008, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. (July 21, 2012) (Credit: Brittany Wait)

The Massapequa Park Village Board on Monday night appointed William Colfer to fill a vacancy on the planning commission.

The board also scheduled a hearing on increasing the commission from five to seven members. Mayor Jeffrey Pravato said the board feels it would be easier to obtain a quorum with a larger planning commission.

Colfer fills the commission seat vacated when Richard Begandy resigned in July after he was appointed to fill a vacancy on the village board. That opening was created by Pravato being named mayor to fill the vacancy created when James Altadonna Jr. was appointed Oyster Bay Town clerk.
