The Local Live recently reported that Mayor Norman Rosenblum sued the Village of Mamaroneck Board of Trustees in an effort to challenge whether two referendums were legal. He claimed that the September 6th meeting in which both referendum laws were passed was actually an illegal meeting. On Thursday, October 27th, Supreme Court Judge Lawrence H. Eckert decided in favor of the Board of Trustees allowing the referendums on the Election Day ballot. Trustee Leon Potok told The Local Live via email, “the judge ruled that the village complied in spirit and letter of the law with all legal requirements. Propositions stay on the ballot”. Despite accepting the court’s decision, Mayor Rosenblum urges voters to vote no and said, “the good thing is that it is still up to the public”. In a PSA, LMCTV’s Election Day hostess, Alice Bloom, explains more about both referendums. Tune in to LMCTV on Election Night to get up-to-date results on our local elections.
During the last Village of Mamaroneck Board of Trustees meeting, Mayor Rosenblum stated that concerns of opioid addiction and heroin overdoses in our community should not be ignored and cannot be solved by only one group. Communication is the main key to addressing this issue, which will not only bring awareness to the issue, but will also alert people to know the signs of drug abuse and how to get help. The Village Board is reaching out to the youth of our community in an effort to inform them on the dangers of heroin and opioids.
As was previously reported on The Local Live, the Mamaroneck School District voluntarily ran a lead test on their 339 water sources. The test revealed that 46 of them had elevated lead levels. In a press release sent out by Mamaroneck School Superintendent Robert Shaps, he stated that in a second round of testing, 39 water sources were found to be safe and only 7 of them still contained elevated lead levels. The district is in the process of developing a permanent plan to provide safe drinking water throughout the district and to replace the fixtures that are exceeding the higher lead levels.
