Katz Convenes Quality Of Life Task Force
The meeting was held in her office in Queens Borough Hall on Monday, April 28.
Borough President Katz formed the task force in response to complaints from residents and business owners about illegal dumping, littering, illegal parking and other chronic quality-of-life problems in the area.
The task force’s members include representatives from the Borough President’s office and the neighborhood’s City Council members along with officials from the local community boards, the NYC Police, Sanitation, Buildings and Transportation departments, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Long Island Railroad, York College, and the area’s Business Improvement Districts (BIDs).
During its monthly meetings, the task force reviews all quality-of-life complaints that have come in regarding southeast Queens and directs a coordinated response to each of the complaints.
Since taking office on January1, Katz has actively pursued outreach efforts to many different groups across Queens.
