First, we want to bring your attention to The Local, which has some great information regarding Myrtle Avenue Revitalization Project and Just Food. They have a job opening to work on food access initiatives. Full description can be found here.
Deadline to apply: April 15, 2009
Annual stipend: $13,548 (plus: $4,725 education award or $1,200 cash bonus at the end of year of service)
Other benefits included.
Also from The Local, there will be a public meeting regarding the 11217 post office. The meeting is at 138 South Oxford at 6PM, and will include a representative from USPS. Although the New York City Council has no authority over the United States Postal Service, most of the staff of Council Member James live in the district and can attest to the service-complaints regarding that branch. We won't be there tonight, but it would be great if someone could update us on what was discussed and the response from USPS.
Lastly, (via Clinton Hill blog) Council Member James is aware of the noise complaints regarding the mosque on Fulton between Cambridge and St. James. Our office is open to facilitating a meeting between the residents, Council Member James, and the representatives of the mosque in this regard. Please contact our office at (212) 788-7081 if you have any questions or comments.
