Flower Hill pols could get insurance

Trustees in the Village of Flower Hill plan to hold three public hearings Tuesday, including one on a proposal that would allow the trustees and mayor to buy health and life insurance through the village.

The hearings are scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. at town hall, 1 Bonnie Heights Rd.

If the insurance provision is approved, the unpaid mayor, deputy mayor and five trustees would be eligible to receive insurance through the village for as long as they hold their seats.

They would pay the same rates as village employees.

The board will also consider a proposal to make a no-parking zone on the north side of Oaktree Lane that would extend 130 feet from the corner of Oaktree and Port Washington Boulevard in Roslyn. The south side already has a no-parking provision.

Oaktree Lane borders St. Francis Hospital and often is lined with parked cars. Drivers turning from Port Washington Boulevard can create a dangerous situation, Village Administrator Ronnie Shatzkamer said.

“If they’re not aware there are cars there they could be slamming into the back of cars,” she said.

The trustees will also consider a proposal allowing owners to walk dogs off-leash between 6:30 and 9:30 a.m. in Flower Hill Park.
