During her first term, Weik said Islip enabled taxpayers to make payments toward their taxes online for the 2013-14 tax bill. "We had so many things hindering us: lengthy lines, slow computers, lots of clerical mistakes because there were computers crashing all the time" before the new system was installed, she said. Putting the finishing touches on the new computerized system is what Weik would focus on if she were elected for a second term. "It's been important to me to bring in as much technology and give as many options to taxpayers as we can," she said. "We're always looking to expand how we can best serve our constituents." Getting information to constituents is also among her priorities, whether it's through the town website, on a bulletin board outside her office or on radio shows.
Weik, 43, of Sayville, is running on the Republican, Conservative, Independence snd Reform lines. She graduated from Connetquot High School and earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from Dowling College.
