Supervisor Saladino Announces Town Expanding Upcoming Open Work Session to Increase Transparency & Efficiency

April 4 Board Meeting to Include Presentations on Concession Services at Various Locations

To further establish the transparency reforms promised by Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino, the Oyster Bay Town Board is expanding a previously scheduled special work session at the Town’s next Town Board meeting on Tuesday, April 4, at 10:00 a.m. at Oyster Bay Town Hall. In the interest of efficiency and expediency to make sure these locations have ample time to prepare for the coming season, the Town Board will publicly hear multiple proposals in response to a request for proposals for the operation of a food and beverage concession services at Town parks and beaches, as well as the Town Golf Course, Supervisor Joseph Saladino announced.

“When I took office, I promised residents that a new era would begin in the Town of Oyster Bay, one with the highest ethical standards, and complete transparency, to regain the faith and trust of our residents,” Supervisor Saladino stated.  “The process of a request for proposals follows the letter of the law, but we wanted to do much more to provide additional transparency. The purpose of this work session is to open the doors of Town government to everyone and to ensure we are operating in complete sunlight.”

The work session, which will allow for the board to hear presentations on food and beverage concession services at the Town’s Golf Course, as well as at Tobay and Tappen Beaches, will take place in the Town Board Hearing Room in Oyster Bay Town Hall, located at 54 Audrey Ave in Oyster Bay, and will be open to the public, who are welcome to attend and observe the process. The public is encouraged to provide input by offering their comments via email, letter, or during the public comment portion of a Town Board meeting. Additionally, the work session will be live streamed through the Town’s website, www.oysterbaytown.com.

“We want to provide our residents with the best food and beverage services in a way that is affordable and enhances their experiences at our parks, beaches and premiere golf course,” Supervisor Saladino stated. “Holding this process at a public open meeting assures that we get it done in time for this season and that we do it right.”
