Firefighters demonstrate escape device at Plaza West Firefighters from Long Island and the metropolitan area gathered at the former Meadowbrook Bank building

located 'on Sunrise Highway and Grove Street recently to view demonstrations of a newly developed system

that enables individuals to escape a burning building by exiting through a window and lowering themselves safely to the street. According to the manufacturer, American Escape Systems, the harness-like device will hold as much as 300 pounds and can be used from as high as seven stories above the street level. "The LifeCender Personal Escape System could mean the difference between life and death in a building fire," said Bill Henson, Sr., the chief executive officer of American Escape Systems. Freeport Ex-Chief Paul Hashagen, who is also a New York City firefighter, said he supports the

use of the LifeCender device and believes it will help save lives,-"In my experience as a firefighter, I know getting individuals out of a burning building as quickly as possible is critical to protecting their lives and preventing fatal injuries. 1 believe this device can help accomplish that goal." The LifeCender Personal Escape System has devices designed both for the consumer market as well as professional firefighters and rescue units.

Trustees face questioning on Power Plant 2 situation by Jim Golding director, later told The Leader that construction had never started and that PCBs were discovered but are being removed. According to a press release from the village, "pre-construction activities at the Power Plant 2 site have included routine pre-construction borings, and the development of a Soil Management Plan for the construction site. The Soil Management Plan was designed to be more extensive' than the constructor's routine, boring plan based on the first identification of PCBs on the PP2 site in 1993." The release also said low level concentrations of PCBs were discovered within the top 24 inches of soil in 1993 while soil borings for the then-proposed PP2 Oil Spill Containment system were being conducted. "The 1993 measurements led the village and NYSDEC to cooperatively develop a mitigation plan that capped and maintained all soil on site," the press release noted. The press release also noted that the PP2 project specifications required all fill associated with the new construction to remain on site and to be covered with soil. In general, analysis of the soil borings demonstrated concentrations similar to the original 1993 readings. However, several locations showed higher concentrations than expected and higher than the regulatory action threshold of lOppm. Further, cen-, centrations were identified in one limited area which require soil removal and dis-

Despite persistent grilling from Stewart Lilker, Village board members would not confirm his assertions that the state Department of Environmental Conservation ordered a halt to construction on the new Power Plant 2 because PCBs were discovered tn soil samples, and that a 20-foot high by 100-foot long mound of dirt containing PCBs lies on the southwest corner of the site. However, in speaking with Hub Bianco of Freeport Electric, there is no mound of dirt; there is a pile of stones which have nothing to do with PCB concentrations. The PCB materials on site have not been excavated yet. Speaking during the public comment portion of the meeting, Mr. Lilker said the PCBs could pose a health danger to fishing as a result of runoff into the nearby canal. He repeatedly stated his incredulity that trustees apparently did not know of the situation concerning the power plant. Resident Vincent Greco also raised the issue of PCBs at the plant and expressed similar fears about their effect on the fishing and clamming industries. "We're not aware that it was shut down," Deputy Mayor Renaire Frierson-Davis responded to Mr. Lilker. She presided over Monday's meeting in place of Mayor William F. Glacken, who was attending a meeting of the American Public Power Association in Washington. Pat Murphy, Village communications

Should one man's swimming hole be another man's toilet? Little, by little, the last frontiers - the oceans, bays and waterways that make up part of this community - are being regulated. ,, We 'now. have BWI (boating while'intoxicated) laws. The equivalent of a driver's license will soon be required. Nassau, County plans to inaugurate regulations for fishing'tdurrisiments to prevent'a tragedy like last summer's. Some part of us says, "Come on, isn't there any place left to be free?" Another part says, "Not if you are endangering others." There is a law of the sea, some of which is custom, that expects people to help each other, be considerate of each other. It can be a matter of life and death, not just for the careless person but also for those around. • Bigger, and feigger,boating crowds also mean more and more littering. SPLASH was founded to.clean up our waterways for the enjoyment of all, but that doesn't relieve individuals from the responsibility of not littering in the first place. In fact, if you have time, why not join their group? Call SPLASH at 378-4770. Meetings are every first Tuesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. at the Seaport Museum, 202 Woodcleft Avenue, "Nautical Mile," Freeport. And there is another matter, one we don't like to talk about much, but it's there. When not just one, but hundreds of boats bypass the pumping stations and dump in the bays and channels of our community, what happens? It's a health hazard, polluting shellfishing areas and causing loss of income to clammers. You don't like shellfish? Well it's also destroying the environment of our communities. It's a practice that is lazy, inconsiderate and frankly, it stinks. True, contamination comes from many sources such as motor oils from boats, and the hull paints that are toxic to barnacles and probably other living things. This may be a complicated issue, but dumping and littering are definitely practices no one can condone. " "

by Joan Delaney REMEMBERING MR. O'CONNOR John P. O'Connor, former principal

of Meadow, Milburn, Coolidge and Prospect Schools, died on July 13. He had been an educator in the Baldwin School District for 37 years, serving as a principal for 31 years. • There are many who remember Jack in his role as educator and they can list numerous projects and programs that he initialed. I will remember fondly the lime I spent as PTA President at Milburn School when Jack was principal. In PTA Council orientation programs, new PTA presidents, are advised "Don'l surprise your principal." A process of ongoing communication is suggested and lhal is whal I enjoyed while working with Jack O'Connor during lhal busy presidency. Jack was a charmer. He knew how lo handle nol only staff and students but a variety of parents with an assortment of priorities and concerns. I don'l remember any issue gelling out of hand al Milburn, even during a lime when the resl of the district was in turmoil over school clos-

'-/)

ings, wilh Milburn School on almost everyone's "to close" list. One of the more delightful projects I participated in wilh Jack was proofreading the "Illustrated History of Baldwin" which the school district was compiling with the assistance of Glenn Sitterly of the Baldwin Historical Society. A local curriculum was being required of all New York Slate schools and as the district's elementary social studies coordinator as well as a devotee of things historic and antique, Jack was the logical choice to direcl ihe project. I suppose the proofreading could have gone faster, but Jack and 1 would get into conversations about Ihe items we read which Ihen led to other bits and pieces of historic information - trips taken, museums visited. Whenever I look at that booklet - which I do frequently for historic information aboul the community -1 think of those pleasant mornings reading and chatling wilh Jack. Another event which illustrated Jack's personal interesls and easy style with children and parents was evident when Milburn held a hobby fair. Parents were asked to come to school to display items

Power plant 2 questions from page 3 have on numerous occasions, complained strongly about the poor acoustics in Village Hall. There have been "constant requests to improve ihe audio from the public address system and we still can't hear," shouted Louise Simpson. She also expressed concern about the "over •$ 100 million debl of ihe village" and that she has tried unsuccessfully to meet with Mayor Glacken for two months, along wilh NAACP officials, lo discuss minority concerns in hiring contractors and women-owned businesses for village contracts. Also during public comment, resident Alex Shapiro asked lhal a $2,080 fine be rescinded for a violalion involving a building al 47 North Main Streel that was his deceased father's law office. Mr. Shapiro said he was not notified properly about the violation, involving

upkeep of the grounds and discarding of old file cabinets. Apparently a letter had 'been senl out about the violation, bul may have been mailed lo an incorrect address. Village officials said they would look into the issue. Alan Jay called for the encouragement of additional development in Freeport "to inflate Ihe lax base" to help ease the tax burden on residents. Carol Nelson complained about improperly parked vehicles at Lincoln Place and Wallace. She said as many as 10 cars park on a grassy area near a corner building. Mr. Mauersberger said he would discuss Ihe problem with her. In regular business, the board approved three requests for block parties and a request to hang a banner for a grand opening at Dunkin Donuts on Sunrise Highway. Trustees adjourned lo executive session to discuss a legal issue and two personnel issues.

from their own hobby collections. We had many parents present; some dads even took off from work to participate, and Jack set up a table with a selection of items from his antique collections. Jack was in his glory, talking about topics that interested him. He was back to his role as teacher with the children and relaxed and informal chatting with parents. Years after, I would occasionally run into Jack in the library and we continued our interesting chats. I remember meeting him once with my daughter who was then in her early twenties. Despite having thousands of students in his schools; he remembered her by name immediately. His first words to her were, "Jennifer, you have grown up into a beautiful young lady." My daughter, fresh from CPA exams and a stressful work environment, looked at me when he left. "I really love Mr. O'Connor. He sure knows the right things to say." Jack's qualities as a teacher and educator were .numerous. Superintendent of Schools Kathy Weiss noted, "Although I did not personally know Mr. O'Connor, his influence is still felt in our schools." Retired music teacher Dr. William Zurcher described Mr. O'Connor as a principal who trusted his teachers and

gave them "the freedom to do their work." Retired principal John Ryan also spoke fondly of Mr. O'Connor. Dr. Ryan remembered Jack's early forays into television, being in charge of the in-district television system in what was described as a small attic-like room in Prospect School. Dr. Ryan added, "I served as his assistant principal before I became princi- to pal. I not only lost a mentor, I lost a great OJ .friend." H The community owes Jack O'Connor a debt of gratitude. A veteran of World War r m II, his patriotism was evident in his initiation of the tradition of having students bring home the classroom flag for major national holidays. His love of America was seen in his decision to have students paint a map of the United States on the blacktop of Milburn School. I remember my daughter coming home with paint streaked on an old tee shirt saying,"We painted Maine today." At Milburn School, he guided staff, children, and parents during difficult times in the community. What those of us will femembermost, however, is that he always did it with 'style. Mr. O'Connor is survived by his wife Frances, the former principal of Shubert School, five children and three grandchildren. Services were held at All Saints Episcopal Church in Baldwin.

Baldwin Rec celebrates 19th year by Joan Delaney The Baldwin Recreation Program, a summer program for young people in the community,, has begun its nineteenth year with 550.children .enrolled and 131 counselors as well as_ 20-25 counselors in training. The program is located in Baldwin Park. According to President Elisa Kamerer, the goal of the program is to offer the children a quality recreational experience. This year, a Sports Academy for soccer, lacrosse, baseball and tennis has also been started as a pilot program. The six week morning recreation program is open to children entering kindergarten through grade eight. Counselors in training are usually 13 years old and are unpaid volunteers. For many of .the paid regular counselors, the job is often their first work experience. The program has always emphasized both a quality recreational experience for youngsters and a responsible work experience for teenagers as equally important goals. Rob Oliveri is the Program Director and oversees activities with approximately one dozen adult staffers

including a nurse. According to Ms. Kamerer, the program is growing and made possible through the generous support of individuals, the school dis, trict and community groups, as well as legislative grants to supplement the tuition. ' The 'morning program includes a variety of activities - sports, games and arts and crafts. Children in grades four and up also go on field trips such as a recent excursion to the Cradle of Aviation Museum. There are an assortment of theme days during the program, which will end on August 15 with a special closing ceremony. "We have a very involved and active board," said Ms. Kamerer, giving special credit to Vice President Sam landiorio and Secretary Ann Edson. Jokingly, Ms. Kamerer said, "Our goal is to pay the bills and keep the kids busy.". Clearly, however, the Baldwin Recreation Program does a lot more. In the future, there is the hope that the afternoon academy, which consists of two two-week sessions, and runs from lunchtime till 2:20 p.m. will be able to include tutoring.

Hubert M. Bianco, Superintendent of Electric Utilities

emember how it seemed that summer would never arrive?' Now that July's weather furnace is stoked, the intemperate cold of the early season is just a hazy memory. Freeport Electric has held up well in this recent heat wave. Compared to early July of last year, electric use in the Village increased just over six percent. As a result of the wet winter and spring, the Village benefits from greater availability of NYPA hydroelectric power. In 20002, NYPA Was forced to.restrict the Village's allocation due to low water conditions. Compared to the same July period last year, the Village imported almost four percent more low cost NYPA hydroelectric power in 2003. In contrast, despite increased demand, Freeport has reduced inVillage generation from approximately three percent of demand to less than two-tenths of one percent. Purchase of electricity from wholesale market sources has increased by approximately 20 percent. The wholesale market currently supplies 36 % of the electricity used this July, with 64% imported from NYPA, compared to 32 % and 65 % respectively in 2002.

Efficiently

As summer heats up, Village residents and businesses can weather the season with these Summer Energy Tips from the Freeport Electric Department for comfort, efficiency and cost effectiveness. Consider raising your thermostat setting- a one-degree increase can save three to five percent of the energy used for cooling. When first turning on the AC, don't choose a low temperature setting. When AC is running, it's cooling as fast as it can and won't cool off a hot room any faster at a lower setting. The low temperature setting runs the unit longer not faster. Make sure you run the AC thermostat set on "AUTO" and never on FAN. Keep the fresh air vent on your AC closed. The AC will run much more efficiently keeping recirculated air cool rather than cooling hot air drawn from the outside. When it comes to your cooling system, change your filters regularly. Dirty filters can choke your cooling system, causing undue service and maintenance calls. Plus, clogged filters shorten the life of the equipment. Use your microwave instead of the range/oven.- The microwave doesn't heat the kitchen. Be sure that your clothes dryer is vented to the out-of-doors. Otherwise it pours heat and moisture

into the house air. Check the clothes dryer lint trap and vent for accumulated lint. A lint-free dryer operates more efficiently. Run appliances such as the washer, dryer, dishwasher during the cooler early morning or late evening hours. Not only will there be less heal added to your home, this helps to balance the energy demand in the Village to meet essential daytime needs for residential cooling, healthcare needs, and our local business and industry. Run appliances such as clothing and dish washers when the load is full. The greatest energy is associated with heating water. Full loads optimize the energy used. Keep up the habit of turning off lights-as you leave a room, especially in summer. Lights add a lot of heat to the room. 99% of a light's energy use is converted to heat, l% to light. Use only as much light as you need. Use task lighting; instead of brightly lighting an entire room, focus the light where you need it. For example, use fluorescent under-cabinet lighting for kitchen sinks and countertops under cabinets. Consider thee-way lamps; they make it easier to keep lighting levels low when brighter light is not necessary. Take advantage of natural daylight by using light-colored, loose-weave curtains on -your windows to allow daylight to penetrate the room while preserving privacy. Also, decorate with lighter colors that reflect light and heat. Use opaque rollup shades to block strong sunlight from heating rooms not in use. Consider planting a shade tree. A tree planted to provide maximum shade on your home can help ease the load on your air conditioner. Several popular shade trees include the maple and oak. If someone in your home relies on electric powered medical equipment, or if their medical condition such as severe asthma or other respiratory disease requires them to stay in air conditioning, be sure to notify the Electric Department in writing. Send your name, address and telephone along with a note from your doctor to Freeport Electric, 46 North Ocean Avenue, Freeport, NY 11520. The Freeport Electric staff are proud of their rapid response in an electric emergency or outage. It's important for the Department to know where medical needs may require a priority response.

Decide for yourself To the Editor: As a candidate' for Commissioner of Sanitary District No. 2,1 am asking the residents of Baldwin, Roosevelt and South Hempstead for their support. As the wife of a Town of Hempstead "garbage man" for 11 years, I was able to gain extensive knowledge regarding Civil Service policies and procedures as well as union contracts. 10 years ago,

through accurate record keeping and intense research of the rules and regulations of the union contract, I successfully challenged the union to get his job back. I understand the physical labor of the job, and I am aware of the impor-. tance of contract negotiations, fleet management and the bidding process. I have dealt with medical insurance plans, the New York State Retirement System, Worker's Compensation rules and regulations, New York State Disability and The Family Medical Leave Act as well as resident complaints and decreased employee morale.

I am an active member of the Baldwin Chamber of Commerce, the Baldwin Community Association, Little League, Sanitation's Annual Big Sweep, the Beautiful Baldwin Foundation and the 2003 Community Leaders' Softball Game. As Commissioner, some of the issues I will address include: the reduction of taxes in the $7.6,milllion y dollar budget; implantation of a County, ordinance making store owners not only responsible for their storefronts, but 18" into the street, restricted personal use of district vehicles.

H

In addition, presently all five c Cdmmissioners are from Baldwin which enables each town individual representation. Since this does not seem to be the case at the moment, I have informed South Hempstead residents as well as Roosevelt residents that if I am elected I will appoint myself their representative. o I would then propose to the Board that a 8 representative be appointed to these two towns every year giving the whole dism trict individual representation. Your tax dollars pay the Commissioner's salaries, so be sure the

Cole Layer Trumble revises future assessment plans By Douglas Finlay Under intense scrutiny for miscalculating numerous Nassau County taxpayers' reassessments of properties during its comprehensive three-year collection of data on over 416,000 homes in the county, ColeLayer-Trumble presented a revised plan for calculating yearly updates to the county's board of assessors on Thursday, July 17, a plan it-said would effectively alleviate several errors generated from the company's earlier reassessment process. The company contended the revised j2 H methods would more accurately assess properties in central Nassau locations in the coming years as they diminish the wild variations in properties that plagued both south shore and north shore waterfront communities. Included among the revisions were increasing the number of neighborhoods from 1 62 to 246, effectively reducing the number of homes within a neighborhood to redefine its characteristics for statistical purposes, and using a Global Information System (CIS) to take photos' from a satellite of the heigliborhopds.; Both- revisions were seen as helping develop truer-^and more precise market value. • - •< \ ' Many on the board were pleased revisions in the new plan would indeed correct earlier errors in the first reassessment. "Given the criticism of the first comprehensive tax assessment in over 60 years, which many of us, including those in the assessment industry,- sincerely believed was the most accurate one ever devised for this county under the time constraints drawn up by the court order, I'm pleased to see that the new technologies implemented in this first of several updates will make taxpayer assessments all that much more fair in the years ahead," remarked board chairman Charles O'Shea. He said yearly advances in technology being applied to updates ordered by the court for the next six years would indeed make Nassau County assessments among the fairest in the county, if not the state. Dennis Brown, vice chairman of the board, agreed, saying "I believe this revised plan now vindicates the board for hiring the company." He said Cole-LayerTrumble had originally been hired because of its excellent reputation in the field, a reputation that was being tarnished by criticisms presented during the initial reassessment. .: Board member Jeff Gold, a Bellmore resident critical of the company's reassessment who voted against rehiring the company, expressed relief at the new plan. "This is what we wanted them to provide us with in the beginning," he said, "and whether through professional arrogance or not understanding the task they signed on for initially, they have now presented a detailed plan that I believe will he|p greatly reduce the variations that caused unfair - tax assessments to many on the north and south shore communities." Darrell Bryant, senior project manager for the company's reassessment project, told the board that drawing up a new residential delineation plan greatly; reduced anomalies such as four or five houses along a street being separated by school districts, instead keeping them within one u

60 CO PL.

neighborhood not dictated by school district boundaries. This would achieve better statistical consistency. He also told the board it sent many representatives into the field — and in particular north- and southshore communities plagued with inconsistent reassessments - to actually visually appraise properties in question. Implementation of the GIS system appeared the most far-reaching addition the company claimed - and the board agreed - would give them the necessary advantage toward .more accurate assessments in the future. "With GIS we can see the whole property and its sight lines," and not evaluate it simply based on a mailbox on a street at the end of a driveway, Mr. Bryant maintained. He said that especially on north- and south-

shore communities sight lines were important characteristics in assessing-property values because even houses hundreds of feel from waterways such as bays, channels, canals and lagoons could have sweeping views of those waterways, effectively increasing their value. GIS would help detect those features," he saiuV Further, the revised plan more fully delineates waterfront properties on varying bodies of water; such as properties on bays with wide-open views of Great South Bay or Long Island Sound, properties on canals with views of docks and bulkheads, and properties on lagoons with views of wildlife and vegetation. These delineations were now in the system, Mr. Bryant said. He noted that widths of canals had not, as of the meeting, been calculated into'the

system yet. Increasing the number of neighborhoods from 162 to 246 was expected to further correct what board members believed was the significant problem in the first tax assessment: providing better physical proximity between houses for assessment purposes. "The purpose of more neighborhoods is to reduce the physical distance between homes for comparable sales," remarked Jim Culver, counsel to the board. With distances in some cases coming several hundred yards between comparable houses in a neighborhood, smaller neighborhoods would decrease those distances to provide for more accurate assessments, he said.

Nassau County Legislator Joseph Scannell (D-5th District) is working to educate afl residents about how to battle the West Nile Virus. The County's Departments of Public Works and Health are working together throughout the summer to trap adult mosquitoes on at least 40 sites around the County to identify species and determine if there are areas of infestation. The traps are set 2 miles apart, emptied on a regular basis by the Nassau County Department of Health Laboratory and species are sent to the State Department of Health for viral testing. The NCDOH also follows closely all cases of suspected or confirmed encephalitis, including West Nile virus. "We must be proactive and all county residents will have to play their parts by staying vigilant and cautious," said Legislator Scannell. Some key tips to controlling mosquitoes: • Remove standing water from the following places in which they breed: Old tires Garbage cans Pails or buckets Children's toys Other objects that can hold water • Chlorinate swimming pools • Unclog gutters

• Change water in bird baths. Report all sightings of dead birds to the toll-free state hot-line at 1-866-5372473. . Ways to prevent infection: • Avoid areas with high mosquito populations. • Use yellow 'bug' lights. • Install screens on all windows and doors. • Use mosquito repellent. • Don't use bug zappers - they kill beneficial insects. Mosquitoes are most active from dusk to dawn and if infected by a WNV-carrying mosquito, symptoms usually occur 5-15 days after the bite. Most people have no symptoms or display slight fever or headache. Severe infections, to which the elderly are most susceptible, result in high fever, headache, confusion, muscle aches, weakness, seizures or paralysis. Last year there were 11 cases of West Nile in Nassau County. For more information on Nassau County's West Nile precautions, please contact Nassau County Mosquito Control at (516) 5718707. More information on the West Nile virus can be found on the county website at http://www.co.nassau.ny.us or by calling the West Nile virus information hotline at 571-2500.

' To The Leader: . J , , ^ ' . " ' , .,'' As the Republican and Independent 3 candidate for Nassau County Legislator .in the 5th District, it is my desire when elected to immediately evaluate the W traffic congestion on Grand Avenue. I am a lifelong Baldwin resident and, for as long as I can recall, traffic on our w main artery has been congested during rush hour and, in many cases, an accident is ready to happen. Installing turn signals, reconfiguring Grand Avenue between Merrick Road and the Library (Prospect Street) and possibly up to the post office just south of Sunrise Highway will be reviewed for diagonal parking. Reconfiguring the intersection at Qrand Avenue and Merrick Road to slow traffic and ease pedestrian crossings will be looked at, as well. I also want to examine widening certain sections of Grand Avenue to ease traffic flow, as well as widening the sidewalks in other areas. I will ask the authorities to suggest potential areas along Grand Avenue that should have parking privileges eliminated so that the avenue could possibly be expanded. One area that comes to mind is the section just north of St. Lukes's Place where the successful Super Grand Buffet Chinese restaurant exists. Customers of those businesses would be requested to park in the large rear parking field, as that restaurant already encourages its patrons to do. We have parking lots that are underutilized behind Grand Avenue and, if we light them up, provide easy access to them for residents and spruce them up to look a lot better than they currently do, we will be able to make better use of them. Currently, there are 100 on-street, 370 off-street (private), 674 off-street (public) and more than 1,200 commuter parking spots in "Downtown Baldwin." During rush hour, it is ridiculous that residents must spend up to 15-20 minutes to cross town along Grand Avenue. Better signage that informs drivers where entrances and exits exist to shopping centers is necessary and the double parked vehicles that clog our roads must be ticketed. After reading the Strategic Downtown Improvement Plan initiated by the Baldwin Chamber of Commerce in April 2000, having patrolled the area for the past 28 years as an'auxiliary police officer and chief, having wit- nessed too many accidents over parts of four decades as a uniformed officer and having listened to many residents, I have come to the conclusion that we must do better. The Chamber of Commerce report states, "The circulation requirements of pedestrians are often in direct opposition to those of vehicles." Enough said. This speaks volumes. We have to admit that our town is a lot busier than it was when its streets were designed more than a century ago and, as times change, so must we. Kevin B.

But Peter Bauer, vice president of the Mandalay Property Owners Association, expressed caution upon hearing increased neighborhoods were being drawn. "In the fifst.reassessment homes in East Meadow were being reassessed based on Bethpage home .sales," he said, "while East Massapequa homes, selling for less than homes in Massapequa, were being assessed at Massapequa prices." He was anxious to see if redrawing neighborhoods would specifically eliminate that discrepancy. , Instead, he believed any updates to reflect true market value would ultimately have to drill down to the house's school district and what major roadways it's near. "What is the first question someone asks when looking at a new house?" he said. ""What school district is it in?" The second question, he continued, was: "what major roadway is it near?" He said neighbors several blocks down from him were assessed

the same as him, while he is near a major roadway. Outliers would likely remain a problem until more updates were performed, however. "Outliers are houses that significantly deviate from market-driven models that have been devised for that neighborhood, in which there is no objective reason for the houses selling so high," remarked Jim Culver, counsel to the board, "except that people saw a uniqueness to a property, and also had significant resources to purchase it. "When the property was assessed, how-

Bob Finnegan, Cole-LayerTrumble's senior vice president and southern New York regional manager, told the board that, while all information presented at the meeting was preliminary, the company would offer more detailed information concerning .market valuations at a September meeting with the board.
