Steve Reiter is seeking reelection as commissioner for the Great Neck Water Pollution Control District (GNWPCD). As a businessman, civic leader and resident for more than 30 years, Reiter said he has consistently put the community first during his term as commissioner as he initiated environmental programs and ensured fiscal responsibility.
In the past three years as commissioner for the GNWPCD, Reiter has helped secure more than two-million dollars in grants for numerous upgrades and improvement projects. Under his oversight, the district didn’t raise the tax levy for district residents for 2016 and completed the major installation of its micro-turbine cogeneration facility to reduce costs to taxpayers.
“Since I was elected in 2012, I have worked tirelessly to ensure district residents receive the highest quality service at the lowest possible cost,” said Reiter. “As a result, district residents enjoy the benefits of a state-of-the-art eco-friendly facility, which has saved taxpayers more than $108,000 in energy costs in the first six months of 2015.”
Reiter supervised the successful completion of the new sewage treatment plant on time and on budget and helped manage the consolidation of the Village of Great Neck sewer system into the GNWPCD. Reiter also spearheaded the district’s decision to develop a new user-friendly website.
“I am proud of the great accomplishments the district has made,” added Reiter. “We are the highest performing, most environmentally friendly sewer service in Nassau County because of the dedication of our team in constantly supporting and advocating on behalf of our residents.”
The GNWPCD election is Tuesday, Dec. 8, from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Voters can cast their ballots at either: Great Neck Social Center at 80 Grace Ave. or E.M. Baker School at 69 Baker Hill Ave.
