Property taxes in Nassau County are among the highest in the country. There are concerns that Nassau won't be able to keep young families here, or attract new ones, if there isn't some form of property tax relief soon. One idea is to change the current public education funding system by replacing property taxes with an income tax. Those in favor argue it's a more equitable system. Those against feel don't fix what isn't broken. Should Nassau County fund public education with an income tax instead of a property tax?

At the corners of Elm Drive and Midwood Cross (neighborhood of Country Estates in East Hills) and Glen Cove rd. are bus stops on a hill that are extremely dangerous. The bus stops should be graded and made flat so in inclement weather individuals aren't at risk of slipping off the hill into on coming traffic.
