Mayor Vincent Suozzi said he made the decision after having lunch March 31 with Oleg Troyanovsky, Soviet ambassador to the United Nations, and his wife, Tatyana, at the Soviet retreat on a 36-acre estate known as Killenworth.

The seven-member town council, some of whom also attended the informal gathering, is expected to approve Mr. Suozzi's recommendation in a vote scheduled for April 24.
