Thursday, January 2, 6:30pm: Community Board 4’s Full Board Meeting | New year, new leadership: The first full board meeting of Community Board 4 (CB4) finds the board with a fresh roster of recently elected officials presiding over the proceedings. As we reported last month, CB4’s new leadership sees Lowell Kern as Chair, Jeffrey LeFrancois as 1st Vice Chair, Jessica Chait as 2nd Vice Chair, and Michael Noble and Maria Ortiz in the Co-Secretary position. One thing remains unchanged: Showing up early to sign up for the Public Comment section ensures you two minutes of uninterrupted time at the podium, to speak your mind any matter whatsoever. The meeting takes place at 6:30pm, Thurs., Jan. 2, at Mount Sinai West (1000 10th Ave., 2nd Floor Conference Room B). For info on all things CB4, visit their website by clicking here.

Heat or Hot Water Off in Your Building? Here’s What to Do | There are enforceable standards to protect you from winter’s bitter cold—as Chelsea’s 10th Precinct of the NYPD reminded us, in a public safety-minded message sent via Twitter. We’re passing it along. Follow the 10th Precinct on Facebook, via #NYPD10PCT and on Twitter, via @NYPD10Pct. For more info, click here. The 10th Precinct tweeted: “If the heat or hot water is turned off in your building, please call 311. See the attached photo regarding the heating rules.”
