Robert F. Cozzetto was named director of facilities for the district during the board of education business meeting held on March 1. Cozzetto joined the district staff in 1992 serving as the clerk of works. Over the course of the last 25 years, he held various positions including maintenance crew leader, acting plant facilities administrator, facilities supervisor, assistant plant facilities administrator, chief emergency officer and health and safety director. Most recently, he served as interim director of facilities when former director of facilities retired on Dec. 30, 2016.
"As a lifelong resident of Lindenhurst, and someone who has served the district for 25 years in various roles, I am honored to take on the responsibilities that comes with being the director of facilities” said Cozzetto. “While it is gratifying to have reached this professional level, what I am most grateful for, is the continued opportunity to serve my school community.”
The Lindenhurst Union Free School District is confident that Cozzetto will continue to be an asset in his new role.
