FACTS versus LIES

I found this very interesting. our mayor stated that he didnt know we needed highway or garbage in our September Village Meeting. I got this delivered to my home in June 2010.
funny how accurate it is:
A Village is RESPONSIBLE for roads & sidewalks
A Village is RESPONSIBLE for garbage collection, recycling,
storm debris clean-up, brush and leaf pickup
The Town will no longer pick-up and dispose of this kind of debris. These services will not “stay” with the Town.
Town “tipping fees” at the dump. We will have to pay more for services we already receive at a discount.
A Village is RESPONSIBLE for removal of dumped couches,
appliances, boats, and debris etc.
. A Village will also need to have an
impound lot to process dumped vehicles and boats
A Village is RESPONSIBLE for maintaining storm drains
and all waste water management
A Village must install, maintain, and clean-out any new or existing storm drains. They are also responsible for: all
dredging, dredge spoils removal, and management of excess tidal & storm water on Village properties.
A Village is RESPONSIBLE for clean-up of neglected properties
This includes the boarding and securing of “blighted and abandoned properties,” as well as the removal of
excessive yard waste. It is mandatory for a Village to employ: legal counsel, building and waste management
investigators, fire marshals, animal control officers, and work crews when securing a property.
A Village is RESPONSIBLE for the maintenance, installation,
and replacement of all street-lighting and traffic-safety devices
A Village is RESPONSIBLE for all code-enforcement
Code-enforcement by the Town includes work done by legal, building, and waste management investigators,
public safety officers, attorneys, and outside counsel. On an annual basis, the Town of Brookhaven law
department (law investigators and attorneys) spends close to $500,000 per year on code-enforcement
in the 11951 zip code. A majority of the fines and
fees projected as Village income will be levied from residents of Mastic Beach to close the budget gap.
A Village is RESPONSIBLE for
all planning & zoning functions,
which are complex and costly
Planning and zoning functions require a multitude of
paid professionals in planning, zoning, environmental
protection, municipal code, and law. A Village is
required to have a planning department, building &
fire safety department, planning board, zoning board,
zoning board of appeals, accessory apartment review
board, and historic district advisory board. These
departments are required by law and will be costly
to taxpayers of the proposed Village.
The Town has established a
Brookhaven Community Court
As of this year, the Town of Brookhaven Community Court
is being provided for all residents without an additional
tax. This court is designed especially to address qualityof-
life code-enforcement violations, and eliminates the
need for a Village court. In 2009-10, the Village of
Babylon’s Village court expenses were $214,000,
with $27,000 just for court office supplies. The
Village of Babylon’s population is very close to the
population of the proposed Village of Mastic Beach.
How can we have a court for $35,000?
New Village Expenses
Lead to Higher Property Taxes
A new Village • will have to take out a tax
anticipation bond on their first day of
incorporation to cover their first year’s
operating and capital expenses.
• A new Village is responsible for all its
official records from the mayor, trustees,
Village clerk, treasurer, assessor,
planning, building, environmental
protection, zoning, fire marshals, law
and code-enforcement departments, and
the Village court. The costly storage
and maintenance of all records
for the proposed Village of more
than 12,000 residents and 5,000
properties is required by law.
• A new Village must provide
transportation and/or travel
expenses for their employees, and
reimburse many other expenses for their
elected officials, appointees, and civil

i have been rereading older posts. i seems like that smart people get the facts flyer was right on the money.
it seems that the pr0 -village flyers were the ones full of lies.
somebody is owed an apology.
it's the people of mastic beach village. they were duped into voting for a village based on lies by the mbvec.

Still have hookers, still have homeless squatters, still have shootings and stabbings, still have meth sold on corners, still no businesses of 'main street.', still no sewers, omnicom, Bayview park, or LEED ambulance building. BUT YIPEE we're getting a new cell tower that we wont see one dime from and oooh I can't wait higher taxes!
Suck it MBVEC.
#5 Sep 27, 2011
Bayview Park is the TOB job not the Village.

An awful lot of postings coming from Brooklyn....I wonder why?
#7 Sep 28, 2011
2 out of 6. wow that is a lot!
It's still all true though. MBV is NOT working for us, it's working for Gary's retirement.

Tired of being lied to when the RIGHT people knew all along what a village needed to do to run smoothly?
Tired of STILL waiting for the vision team to figure it out?
Vote in the ones who told the truth from day 1!
VOTE MAURA AND BRUCE AND GET YOUR VOICE INTO VILLAGE HALL!

Dump do nothing BOB & Gail in March 2014 Vote them out if we get Bruce and Maura in and the DA finally throws a rope around Garry. That would Bill and Nick Bill most likely will flip on Gary to save his ass but will have to step down maybe do 6 mount but he's gone. And we got a whole new friggin ball game. The wheels of justus turn slow.

Be careful what you wish for... Since Maura has now stated she wants MBV to have a " real highway department " because she doesn't think the current DPW is adequate, I would like to know how she proposes we pay for it? And, since she obviously has issues with the way Gary and anyone else involved is managing the DPW, I hope she knows that should she be elected, she will be assigned that position.

Are you tired of living in the "visions" part time village while paying full price?
Did you vote for a village because the TOB was going to "do everything they did before at the same cost"?
Feeling like you were lied to yet?
VOTE FOR MAURA AND BRUCE AND GET THE VILLAGE YOU VOTED FOR!
If you're tired of the lies, vote the liars out!

Please tell US what your plans are to convert the so-called "part time village" into a full time village at the same cost. I await your reply.

Did you vote for a village based on the lies of the MBVEC?
Have those lies come true?
Are you tired of waiting for the Vision Team to " figure it out"?
Vote in MAURA AND BRUCE and have a say in the village!
If you're tired of the lies, vote the liars out!
#16 Feb 17, 2014
The FACTS are long, but the LIES were longer!
Tired of paying for the MBVEC lies yet?
Vote in new representation for ALL the residents of MBV, not just family members!
Vote Bruce and Maura to get your voice heard!

Avoiding the question...
#18 Feb 17, 2014
Do you notice that the dynamic duo is doing the same thing that our present staff is presently doing. Ignoring questions raised on here about there visions not ours. They continually post there same message but ignoring all the comments and credible issues that are being posted on here. They are not my cup of tea as well as Bob or Gail. What other competent candidates are running???????
#19 Feb 17, 2014
Did YOU approve spending ONE MILLION DOLLARS OF YOUR TAX MONEY to buy the nutrition center?
Why won't the current leaders tell us BEFORE spending our tax dollars?
Wondering if we will EVER have a say in the village like we were promised?
If you want your voice heard BEFORE spending, elect the ones who will tell you!
Vote Maura and Bruce for a chance to heard in YOUR village!
#20 Feb 17, 2014
You are really seeming desperate. I don't see the other candidates going to the extremes you are to try to get your duo elected.
