groups. The meeting, called by
Councilman Philip B. Ilealey,
was moderated by Jerry Marcus,
Town recreation department
youth bureau supervisor0
Four teenage and three adult
groups met separately to point
up and present existing problems
for audience discussion. Problems
aired centered around communication
with parents, police
and school officials; the need for
more transportation; use of narcotics;
programs; lack of parental understanding;
lack of respect for
authority and vandalism,,
Ilealey said the recommendations
made by those participating
in the conference will be studied
and where possible programs
will be developed and facilities
made available to accommodate
the youth's needs.
The conference, the first in a
series scheduled to be held in
various communities throughout
As a result of Thursday's
meeting, Plainedge and Massapequa
area teenagers will participate
in planning a teenage
program under the auspices of
the Oyster Bay Town Department
of Recreation and Community
Town Prepares To Battle Leaves
Oyster Bay Town is preparing
to tackle the job of removing
felling leaves this month according
to Majority Leader Ralph J.
Marino who announced that the
program will start when the
leaves begin falling.
All of the town's 683 miles of
highways will be included in the
program which will feature the
posting of signs displaying a
large oak leaf marking the areas
that will be serviced.
Leaf pick - up will begin,
weather permitting, within two
days after the signs are placed
and leaf machines will work from
north to south and will spend as
much time as necessary in the
area, depending on the volume.
They will return to the same
areas as needed.
On town roads, leaves should
be accumulated at the curbs for
the street cleaning machines -
vacuum leaf machines and street
sweepers. Shrub cuttings and
other refuse should be placed in
disposable containers and left
for refuse pick up since they
damage leaf collecting equipment,,
The Nassau County Department
of l> ublic Works lias ordered all
leaves on county roads be placed
in disposable containers for regular
refuse pick up.
" Sprinkling of the leaves with
a hose will hold them down, if
necessary, until the area is
serviced," said Marino.
