The 61st Precinct Community Council Meeting will meet at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Sephardic Community Center (1901 Ocean Parkway).
The Community Council is comprised of concerned residents and top brass from the 61st Precinct, and offers neighbors an opportunity to ask questions and express concerns about crime and safety issues in the area. The monthly meetings are attended by Captain John M. Chell, the commanding officer of the precinct, who will present a report on incidents and trends in the neighborhood, and speak face-to-face with neighbors about specific concerns.

Passover will be here before we know it, but before we all start signing “Dayenu,” Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz is co-sponsoring an Electronic Waste/Sneakers/Clothing & Textile Recycling Day, to help us safely and responsibly dispose of unwanted items in our homes — just in time for Passover cleaning.
The Recycling Day, scheduled for April 10 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., will be held curbside at the Sephardic Community Center, 1901 Ocean Parkway and Avenue S.
Items considered acceptable for recycling are:
- Electronic waste: computers, monitors, printers, televisions, cell phones, fax machines (no household appliances, refrigerators or air conditioners)
- Old athletic shoes (no metal cleats, flip flops, boots or dress shoes)
- Clothing, linens, and other textiles that are too worn out to give away
