PRESS CONFERENCE: Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano joined with Federal lawmakers this week to advocate for apprenticeship program requirements for Federal construction projects. The group gathered at, and toured, the Bay Park Wastewater Treatment Plant – one of the largest post-Superstorm Sandy repair and resiliency projects in the nation. After a walkthrough of the Plant Construction Site and new Substation, came a Roundtable discussion on visions of Apprenticeship Programs.
Among the Roundtable participants were U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez; Congresswoman Kathleen Rice; Assemblyman Todd Kaminsky; County Legislator Denise Ford; and representatives from various Building & Construction Trades such as the Steamfitters, Teamsters, Sheet Metal Workers, Carpenters and Plumbers.
In 2013, the County Legislature approved the Mangano administrations requirement that all construction contracts in excess of $500,000 have apprenticeship programs. The apprenticeship legislation eliminated loopholes that had allowed contractors to avoid the program, and related costs, by subcontracting much of the work.
Congresswoman Rice has urged President Obama to encourage apprenticeships in Federal Project Labor Agreements.
County Executive Mangano thanked Rice and Perez for their leadership on this “important initiative.”
“In today’s global economy, we believe the Federal government should be a leader in helping to develop a highly-skilled and well-trained workforce,” Mangano said. “Apprenticeship programs train students in workplace safety and give students the tools they need to have successful careers. Apprenticeships also offer an opportunity for women and other minorities to work in the construction field.”
He said Apprenticeship programs are benefitting the Bay Park Improvement project, while training the workforce with the skills needed by society.
“Nassau County has been a leader when it comes to apprenticeship programs,” Mangano told those gathered at Bay Park. “Together, we can achieve significant savings for taxpayers on large-scale construction projects by employing apprentices, while still maintaining a high-level of skill and accountability. Let’s get it done at the Federal level.”# vimeo.com/146108531 Uploaded 2 Plays 0 Likes 0 Comments
County Executive Ed Mangano announced the grand opening of Nassau’s latest affordable, transit-oriented housing complex, Modera Mineola, which will provide much needed housing for working young professionals and seniors.
Mill Creek Residential Trust constructed the five-story 275-unit apartment building at Old Country Road and Willis Avenue, in downtown Mineola. The $93 million project created 338 construction jobs and six new permanent full-time equivalent jobs. This housing complex was built from converted empty office space, which will also benefit downtown Mineola and the local economy.
Modera Mineola is surrounded by Mineola’s downtown shops and restaurants, Central Nassau’s dense concentration of employers, retail and cultural venues, and is in close proximity to the Long Island Rail Road.
Nassau County is expected to reap economic benefits from the project of more than $97 million over the 20 years following the completion of construction.
County Executive Mangano has said, since first taking office in 2010, that it’s a priority of his administration to help create new ways in which to assist residents, young families and meet employers-need for a skilled and educated workforce.
“My administration and the Nassau County Industrial Development Agency are proud to have partnered with Mill Creek on this project,” he said. “This transit-oriented development project goes a long way toward helping meet the demand for new housing in Nassau. These housing opportunities assist young families, who often seek rental opportunities as their starter home.”
The 275 new units unveiled today, are in addition to more than 3,500 new apartments which have opened or are under construction in the County.# vimeo.com/146110666 Uploaded 24 Plays 0 Likes 0 Comments
