PRLog - Aug. 17, 2012 - HUNTINGTON, N.Y. -- Municipalities are subject to a host of state and federal laws and regulations. From state law governing zoning, contracting and the environment, to federal law governing labor relations and due process, nearly every decision a municipality must make is subject to some kind of a statute or regulation. In addition to legal concerns, municipal officials must guard the concerns of their often diverse constituents while keeping an ever watchful eye on the budget.

Long Island is comprised of two counties, which together contain fifteen towns: Oyster Bay, Hempstead, North Hempstead, Long Beach and Glen Cove in Nassau County; and Babylon, Brookhaven, East Hampton, Huntington, Islip, Riverhead, Smithtown, Shelter Island, Southampton and Southold in Suffolk County. In addition there are local hamlets and villages within these towns that are too numerous to mention here. If it were a state, Long Island would rank 13th in population and first in population density. We live here, we work here, and we take great pride in all that Long Island has to offer. We also understand the unique challenges that the many and diverse municipalities face.
