Imbroto Named to Nassau Environment Task Force
by Maureen Daly
Oyster Bay Town Councilman Lou Imbroto was recently appointed by Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino to serve as the Town's representative on a countywide environmental committee known as the Nassau County Soil and Water Conservation District. This committee is charged with providing "on the ground" assistance for soil and water resources, preservation of wildlife, and promote the health, safety, and welfare of residents in their respective communities.
"I am very proud and humbled to accept Supervisor Saladino's nomination to join this important countywide environmental committee,” stated Imbroto. “I share his commitment to protecting our environment, our natural resources, and our water supply. Long Island is a sole source aquifer system, so making sure that we do all we can to protect it will continue to help promote the health, safety, and welfare of our residents."
The Nassau County Soil and Water Conservation District provides programs and technical services to County residents and municipalities to manage natural resources. Representatives from numerous municipalities work together for clean water and healthy soils with individuals, municipalities, private and public organizations, and schools.
"As many know, the preservation of our environment is an issue close to my heart,and something I have worked my entire life in government to help promote,” added Saladino. “Prior to becoming Town Supervisor, as a State Assemblyman, I passed landmark legislation regarding remediation of our aquifer of the plume and have dedicated my time in office to hold Grumman and the Navy accountable for the soil pollution they left behind in our park. I know that Lou Imbroto is passionate and dedicated and will work to carry on our legacy of putting our environment first."
