Town of Babylon Supervisor Rich Schaffer, Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez, and Councilmen Anthony Manetta and DuWayne Gregory recently joined with other state, town and county officials and community activists for a ground breaking ceremony at the site of what will soon be the town’s new North Amityville Municipal Building. New York State Assemblywoman Kimberly Jean-Pierre, and Suffolk County Legislators Kevin McCaffrey and Jason Richberg were also in attendance.
The Town of Babylon Municipal Building at North Amityville will be a two-story building that houses the Department of Civil Service and the town’s new code violation adjudication bureau. The building is located at 456 Albany Avenue.
The Department of Civil Service will include a civil service career center terminal where residents will be welcome to come and learn about the many employment opportunities that the town has to offer in addition to information about civil service tests. As for the new adjudication bureau, the town aims to improve residents’ quality of life by enforcing code violations such as, building and fire violations, invalid or missing Certificate of Occupancy violations, high grass, improper waste disposal, unregistered vehicle storage and other common issues.
“I am ecstatic over the project, it’s finally happening – my husband Irwin Quintyne’s dream is coming to fruition,” said community activist Delores Quintyne referring to her late husband and his life-long commitment to the betterment of North Amityville. Commissioner of Human Services Madeline Quintyne-McConney added, “I am grateful and thankful for the stability and sustainability of the North Amityville community, my dad would be proud!”
The new building will benefit the North Amityville community by increasing foot traffic in the area, which will result in support for surrounding businesses as people from all over the town will be heading to this centralized location to handle their town-related matters.
