An important new procedure is being implemented
this fall in our Recreation Program. Similar
to the Nassau County Leisure Pass, it will be
necessary for all to obtain a Recreation Reg-istration
Card in order to participate in Rec-reation
activities. An application is requir-ed..
which, gives, us valuable data regarding who
we are serving, i.e., age group, sex, location,
etc. Conversely, it becomes apparent as to
whom we are not serving as well as we could.
With the increased participation in Recreation
activities, there is a corresponding increase
in unavoidable accidents due simply to the in-creased
activity. Therefore, we have decided
to obtain accident insurance to supplement
any coverage a family may or may not have.
In order to keep costs low, this insurance is
mandatory for all and so the Registration (I."
0. card) will cost $2.00 per person, per year.
The charge is minimal and the coverage will
prevent hardship for some families and be of
great advantage in future programming. The
Important Message <
card is good until August 31, 1971*, regardless
of when purchased and so there is no advantage
in delay. The Registration card does not in-clude
those fees charged for some special pro-grams.
Cards may be obtained at the Recreation office,
from 9 AM to 't PM, Monday - Saturday and from-
7 PM to 9 PM on Monday and Friday during the
entire month of October. Thereafter, I.D.
cards may be obtained Monday - Friday, from
9 AM to *t PM. Every registrant will have his
photo on his I.D. card and therefore must reg-ister
in person. Proof of residency is re-quired.
It is my hope that Freeporters will readily
accept the advantages of this innovation.
Certainly the charge is more than commensurate
with the benefits.

Landlords Must Get Permits
Superintendent of Buildings Louis Bello remind-ed
all owners of rental property that Village
laws now require a permit for any rental hous-ing,
whether it is a one-family house, two-family
house, multiple dwelling, or apartment
The purpose of the new law is to assure compli-ance
with all Village building and zoning codes,
particularly those covering the number of per-sons
or families permitted in a particular
house or dwelling. It is also designed to
protect tenants against substandard living
conditions by having the Building Department
verify that all rental premises are clean, safe,
in sanitary condition,' in proper repair, and
free from rodents or vermin.
Under the new housing ordinance, no permit will
be issued for any rental unit unless it has first
been inspected by the Building Department. Writ-ten
into the ordinance are specific minimum pen-alties.
For failure to obtain a rental permit
or failure to notify the Superintendent of Build-ings
of any change in tenancy the fine will be
not less than $100 and up to $250 or 15 days in
jail for each violation.
Applications for rental permits are available
at the Building Department, Municipal Building,
*»6 No. Ocean Avenue, Freeport, New York.
The landlord's license fee to be paid to the
Building Department for a two year period will
be $20.00 for renting a one-family dwelling.
For buildings with more than one family, the
..fee will.be $20.00 for the first dwelling unit
and S't.OO for each additional dwelling unit,
and fl't.OO whenever a turn-over occurs in ten-ants.
In the case of a two-family house in
which the owner lives, the fee will be one-half
the regular fee.
roblems can often be solved and questions an-swered
if only people knew just whom to contact.
That is exactly the purpose of the new Library
activity known as Community Information Service.
"We want to make it possible for people to bene-fit
from services that exist for them," a Library
spokesman said. "Through the years we have seen
many perplexed individuals come to the Library -.
as a last resort; now we urge you to come to the
Library as a first resort and let us put you in
touch with the skilled advice that can help with
your personal problems.
"The dilemmas of daily life in our complex world
are many: 'I would like the name of a competent
marriage counselor and I'd rather not ask my
doctor'; 'Some of the trash I put out was picked
up and some was left -'why, and what shall I do?';
•'Where can I take a mothers-to-be class?1; 'My
1*» year old son is coming home intoxicated more
and more frequently. Where can I get help?'.
We have gathered information about services that
-can-effectively assist you. Stop by at the Ref-erence
Desk - ask us. There's nothing to lose
if you do, except possibly some anxiety and dis-tress;
we would really like to be of help. Come
in or call - Freeport Memorial Library, West
Merrick Road and South Ocean Avenue, FR 9-327'*,
