DEP Coming Back For More Flood Punishment Tonight!

City's flooding experts scheduled to talk with residents at Community Board 6.

After taking a rhetorical pounding at a community meeting last month, representatives of the DEP will come back to Forest Hills for a round of "thank you sir, may I have another" at the Community Board 6 meeting tonight. 

At last month's special meeting, sponsored by City Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz and CB6, Department of Environmental Protection representatives offered few solutions to the flooding that has haunted Forest Hills residents.

DEP officials said that while complaints weren't falling on deaf ears, they were more likely than not falling on idle hands. They promised to collect responses and concerns, but ultimately said that nothing was on the schedule that would immediately alleviate flooding in the area.

Koslowitz was unhappy with the response, as was a throng of local homeowners who made it clear that flooding was threatening their property too often.

The DEP presentation is likely to be the keynote, more or less, of Tuesday night's CB6 meeting. 

Also on the agenda:

  • A report from CB6 Chairman Joe Hennessy
  • A report from District Manager Frank Gulluscio
  • A public hearing on the Fiscal Year 2014 capital budget
  • A vote on liquor license renewals for area restaurants.

If any of that floats your boat, head on down to the CB6 meeting at 80-02 Kew Gardens Rd., Kew Gardens at 7:45 p.m.
