Town of Oyster Bay Deputy Supervisor Leonard Genova has vacated his position to become Town Attorney.
The move, which was approved by the Town Board last week, takes effect Wednesday, Dec. 1, with the beginning of the new month.
Because Genova's appointment left the deputy supervisor's post empty, the board also passed a resolution, which allows him to sign documents when Town Supervisor John Venditto is out of town and unavailable.
In addition, the Board also passed a resolution to begin accepting designs and bids for a new preschool facility in .
"Residents in Massapequa had been requesting the Town establish the same pre-school program in their community that had been operating so successfully in Syosset for years," Venditto said in a statement, adding that the Massapequa school has been temporarily using a trailer approved by the State Education Department since it opened in 2008.
"The Town Board has now approved construction of a building specifically suited to the needs of the pre-school," Venditto said. It will not only be more functional for the students and staff than the current trailer, but will be a much more attractive addition to Marjorie R. Post Community Park."
The building will be a 3,690-square-foot modular structure that will be assembled on site. It'll contain two classrooms, male and female restrooms, and an office.
Plans are for the new building to be open for the new school year in September 2011, according to the Supervisor's office.
