Update: All four property owners' associations have cancelled their resident electors' meetings scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 21. Check out our article in the Top News section for alternate dates.

Garden City's four property owners' associations are gearing up for their respective electors' meeting, held annually in January. Each association will make their nominations official Tuesday night for village and school board trustee positions.

  • The Central Property Owners' Association (CPOA) annual resident electors' meeting is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Wyndham Room in The Wyndham (100 Hilton Avenue). The CPOA Nominating Committee selected Theresa Trouvé for the position of village trustee for the 2014-2016 term. She will replace trustee Andrew Cavanaugh on the board.
  • The Garden City Estates Property Owners' Association (Estates POA) annual resident electors' meeting is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Stratford School auditorium. The Nominating Committee of Garden City Estates will present current trustee Brian Daughney to serve another two-tear term as a village trustee beginning in April 2014.
  • The Eastern Property Owners' Association (EPOA) annual resident electors' meeting is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Stewart School auditorium. The elected members of the Garden City East Nominating Committee unanimously nominated Nick Episcopia, current deputy mayor, to the village's board of trustees for a new two-year term beginning in April 2014.
  • The Western Property Owners' Association (WPOA) annual residents' electors general meeting is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Homestead School. The Nominating Committee selected Robert Bolebruch, current trustee, to the village's board of trustees. Bolebruch first began serving as village trustee in April 2013, finishing out the remaining year of the village trustee seat vacated by John Watras, Garden City's current mayor.
Under Garden City's Community Agreement, which was adopted back in 1919, "the four property owners' associations are the conduits which supply the slate of candidates. At all times each section of the village has two of its residents on the board of trustees, assuring equal representation."

Any 15 or more residents can challenge the person(s) nominated by submitting a petition for an alternate candidate. The residents need not be POA members but they must be residents of that particular section of the village.

Challenges force run-off elections, which are to be held this year in January in the sections of the village where the challenges took place. The names of the winners will officially appear on the ballot for the village election in March.
