On January 12, 2009, Legislator Norma Gonsalves and the Nassau County Legislature unanimously voted to adopt the 2009 Nassau County Capital Budget Plan. The Legislators voted to support the projects that the county will undertake to improve the health, safety and quality of life of Nassau County residents over the next four years.
These capital projects include maintenance and rehabilitation of county roads, preservation and redevelopment of county parks, enhancement of technology to improve government efficiency, and much more throughout the county and in our neighborhood. Approval of the Plan ensures that capital improvement projects will commence, contracts will be awarded, and Nassau County residents can count on employment in the coming year. “I am pleased that we succeeded in a bipartisan manner to adopt the 2009 Capital Budget Plan. It is an opportunity to move projects forward that will do much to stimulate our economy,” said Legislator Gonsalves.
