Everyone loves community boards, right?

Today's headlines open with a public service announcement: Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso made a big splash by launching his annual community board application process before most other Beeps got out of the gate.

Reynoso's Staten Island counterpart, Vito Fossella, keeps the same web page active for rolling applications, so if you live on the Rock, you can apply for next year. Meanwhile, check back if you live in Queens, The Bronx or Manhattan — those application periods haven't opened yet, but will shortly.

So, for now, Brooklyn residents, click here. Staten Island residents, click here. Join your local board! What could possibly go wrong?
