Last month, East Hills resident Michael Kosinski was presented with the most prestigious award in the village, the Award of Distinction. Kosinski, village officials said, received the award for a lifetime of achievements, including serving as chair of the Zoning Board of Appeals and helping to implement the Park at East Hills.
The award, as presented to Kosinski, reads: “Presented to Michael Kosinski for his tireless work, dedication and valuable assistance in helping to plan, design and construct the Park at East Hills.
Michael Kosinski’s commitment, perseverance, input and involvement has been highly beneficial in helping to transform the former Roslyn Air National Guard Station into an award-winning park, with the finest sports and recreational amenities for all its residents.
“The village, therefore, expresses its greatest gratitude to Michael Kosinski for all his many successes, and presents this Award of Distinction to commemorate his exemplary achievements,” the citation read.
Kosinski was selected for the award by the Board of Trustees, whose members include Mayor Michael Koblenz, Deputy Mayor Manny Zuckerman, and Trustees Gary Leventhal, Clara Pomerantz and Brian Meyerson.
