With a high-powered wind turbine at the Department of Conservation and Waterways, the Town of Hempstead has blown past the 100,000-kilowatt hour mark, generating over 128,000 kilowatt hours in just 24 weeks. The wind turbine, erected in December 2011, currently provides power to Long Island’s only hydrogen fueling station.
This amazing accomplishment confirms Supervisor Kate Murray and Senior Councilman Anthony J. Santino’s vision that the answer to clean, renewable energy is truly “blowin’ in the wind.”
Sitting behind the wheel of a hydrogen fuel cell-powered town vehicle – the fuel created as the result of the wind turbine powering the town’s water-to-hydrogen conversion process – Murray drove through a “finish line” banner marking the passing of 125,000 kilowatt hours.
To assist senior citizens in filing their income tax returns, Hempstead Town’s Department of Senior Enrichment is seeking volunteers to help run the town’s free Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. VITA is offered in partnership with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
“VITA is an invaluable service offered to senior citizens who require assistance in filing for annual income tax returns,” said Senior Councilman Anthony J. Santino.
Hempstead Town’s VITA Program helps senior citizens prepare their federal and state income tax returns and secure every penny of the refunds to which they are entitled.

With a stated goal of facilitating reasonable development of the 77 acres of property surrounding the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray and Senior Councilman Anthony J. Santino, along with the town board, approved a new development zone for the site during the Town Board meeting on Tuesday, June 21.
The new zoning district, which was crafted by the Town, was presented to the Supervisor and Councilmembers as an alternative to the Lighthouse Project in an environmental report (Final Environmental Impact Statement [FEIS]). This new zone provides for vibrant mixed-use development that is sustainable and will complement the suburban character of surrounding communities.
