On January 1, 2018, a new Suffolk County law goes into effect that charges a five-cent fee on disposable plastic and paper bags at a variety of retail stores. Those in support of the fee believe it will protect the environment from degradation. Those against are concerned it will hurt local businesses because the five-cent fee is nothing more than a tax. Do you support a Nassau County law imposing a five-cent fee on disposable plastic and paper bags?

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.
