Both candidates for deputy parks director were rejected by the Town Board at its meeting last week.
Supervisor Chad Lupinacci’s resolution recommended Cable Todd Jamison for the job; the resolution failed, with Lupinacci and Councilman Ed Smyth voting for it; Democrats Mark Cuthbertson and Joan Cergol opposed and Councilman Gene Cook abstained.
Then Cuthbertson recommended Walter Edwards for the job, but the resolution failed 2-2-1, with Cergol joining Cuthbertson, while Lupinacci and Smyth voted no, and Cook abstained again.
On Dec. 15, the board promoted deputy director Bill Musto, appointing him as director to succeed Greg Wagner, who had resigned. Musto served as deputy director of the department for the past three years, coordinator of Student-Athlete Services for Farmingdale State University since 2003 and as the university’s former head men’s basketball coach from 1997-2003.
The board also voted to:
Authorized a contract with Turf Tek USA for the Greenlawn Park playground.
Authorized an agreement with the Suffolk County Police Athletic League, Inc. for a soccer program at the Town of Huntington Manor Field Park from April 21, 2021 through June 30.
