Malverne Mayor Keith Corbett and the village board installed a water well at Westwood Park last month to significantly reduce the costs of watering. The park has 17 watering zones, which cost thousands of dollars a month to operate. With the new well, the village taxpayers would pay nothing for watering Westwood Park.
The village board plans to announce additional cost savings for residents going forward. There will also be further enhancements to the well cover with painting and proper plantings.
