In response to your request for topics, perhaps you could explore the following: 3)Has the proposed restaurant next to the Malverne Diner been abandoned? 4)Has Malverne Village abandoned the Road Repair program? 5) If the Mayor and the Village trustees work for us, why are they planing a retaliatory code enforcement program against the residents? 6) Is the Mayor of Malverne Village taking any steps to reduce Village spending?

Thanks for the feedback, Bill. (I had not realized that due to a technical glitch half of my 5 Things were deleted after I published them.) I'm looking into your questions. I can tell you that I have heard that some of the restaurant's initial investors have backed out, but I'm trying to get the full story before I publish anything. I will reach out to the village to ask them to respond to your other queries. -Tara
