A referendum on the proposal is scheduled for Aug. 1.

The meetings are scheduled from noon to 2 p.m. and 4 to 8 p.m. on the following days (except on July 12).

* Today: Westbury Memorial Public Library, 445 Jefferson St., Westbury.
* July 11: Jones Manor on the Sound Adult Home, 59 Bayville Ave., Bayville.

* July 15: Theodore Roosevelt Executive & Legislative Building, 1550 Franklin Ave., Mineola.

“In order for residents to make an informed decision, I am committed to making sure all information is available to answer any questions” before the Aug. 1 referendum, Mangano said in a news release.
