The Long Island Economic Development Council, established by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, will hold its first public meeting Tuesday night at Hofstra University.

The move comes after the council and nine others across the state were criticized earlier this month for convening for the first time in secret. However, LI council vice chairmen Kevin Law and Stuart Rabinowitz quickly promised all future sessions would be open to residents and the media.

The local council will meet from 4 to 6 p.m. at Hofstra’s Mack Student Center in Hempstead. Attendees should RSVP to Loretta Crawford at 631-435-0717 or

Separately, two public forums, where the 22 council members and Lt. Gov. Robert J. Duffy seek feedback from residents, are scheduled for next month and in October.

The council is facing a Nov. 14 deadline to submit to the Cuomo administration a five-year plan for creating jobs in Nassau and Suffolk counties.
