Today’s news:

Spring cleaning, repaved streets

State Senator Marty Golden is seeking community input in an effort to repair local streets and roadways in the coming weeks following the cold days of winter.

Golden stated, “As the fresh air of spring is upon us, as we see the flowers bloom, this is the time for us as a community to focus our attention on repairing the condition of the streets on which we live, work and attend school. By contacting my office and advising my staff and myself of areas that need attention, both those of street cave-ins and those requiring paving, we are making sure that all pedestrians and motorists travel in a safe environment.”

Golden continued, “In the past, the residents of Brooklyn have been kind enough to contact my office and last winter, through the efforts of this project, over 200 potholes were repaired. Maintaining the integrity of our infrastructure is very important and I look forward to hearing from the community and working with the Department of Transportation to remedy the dangerous conditions that exist to ensure the safety of all residents.”

Senator Golden has made available forms at his office that will allow local residents and community organizations to report the presence of potholes, street cave-ins, and streets which require paving.

To file a complaint, contact either of Senator Golden’s district offices at 718-238-6044, 718-627-3659 or at

In the next couple of weeks, Senator Golden will compile a complete list of all locations and forward them to the Department of Transportation.
