Great Neck, NY - January 20, 2016 - Steve Reiter was sworn in to the position of Commissioner of the Great Neck Water Pollution Control District (GNWPCD) after recently being reelected to the office. In addition to being re-elected Commissioner for his second consecutive three-year term, Reiter was reappointed Secretary of the District’s Board of Commissioners. Reiter has been a businessman, civic leader and Great Neck resident for more than 30 years, and during his most recent term he helped secure more than two million dollars in grants to the district for numerous upgrades and improvement projects. With his help, the District did not raise the tax levy on District residents for 2016 and completed the major installation of its micro-turbine cogeneration facility to reduce costs to the taxpayer.
