Come one, come all! Town hall meeting hosted by Bayswater Civic this evening (Mon. Jan. 24) at Bayswater Jewish Center, 23-55 Healy Ave., starting at 7 p.m.
Featuring Mayor Bloomberg and numerous commissioners of city agencies. The mayor is wise to bring those commissioners with him to Rockaway; seems there’s always a host of legitimate complaints that city agencies ignore regularly until an event like this comes about. Tonight there will probably be promises to fix things, budgets permitting. No doubt the ferry will come up, and the bridge toll, and other extremely important transportation subjects. Someone can ask whether any of the reasonably frugal suggestions made at the September Rockaway Task Force meeting have been implemented, such as later express bus service into Rockaway on weeknights, or weekend express bus service like that enjoyed by other parts of the outer boroughs, such as Howard Beach!
