PSEGLI

PSEGLI has received funding from FEMA for hazard mitigation work. Some of this work will be taking place in the village.  The largest area of the work in our Village will be in the vicinity of Carlton Terrace, between Chester and Cambridge Avenues, although other areas will also be affected.  PSEGLI mailed a letter to all residents this week on this topic.  In the coming weeks you will be seeing trucks in the area performing this work. According to PSE&G there are no anticipated outages during this work. As per the letter, for any questions, please contact PSEGLI directly at 1-800-490-0025.

 

4th of JULY

The Village Hall will be closed on Wednesday, July 4th.  There will be no sanitation pickup.

 

The Fire Department will be hosting the annual 4th of July Parade on July 4th, beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Stewart Avenue. The parade route is as follows (the same as prior years): The parade begins at 10:30 a.m. on Stewart Ave and Fernwood Terrace North and then proceeds as follows: Stewart Avenue to Covert Avenue, then south on Covert Avenue to Salisbury Avenue, Salisbury Avenue to Dover Parkway, Dover Parkway to Cambridge Avenue, Cambridge Avenue to Tulip Avenue and then back to the Village Hall.  A block party and barbeque will take place after the parade in the municipal parking lot.

 

As in past years there will be patriotic floats, bands, antique cars and trucks and elected officials participating in the parade. Afterwards there will be the customary block party and barbeque in the municipal parking lot with food and entertainment for all ages.  Be sure to come out and enjoy the holiday with your friends and neighbors.  If you live along the parade route please try to keep your car off the street as to allow the parade to pass safely. Also, please be sure to display your American flag. 

 

During the last few years, the number of reports of water balloons being thrown at our American Flag, Nassau County Police Officers, Color Guard, fire vehicle windows and windshields, women, seniors; and children getting too close to large Fire Vehicles have increased.  We urge you, in order for all to enjoy and safely observe our country’s birthday celebration, the Chiefs of the Department in conjunction with the Nassau County Police Department developed the following parade rules for all attending and participating:

 

1.    PLEASE do not throw balloons or shoot water guns at: an American Flag, Nassau County Police Officers, any COLOR GUARD UNIT or Marching Band, Veterans or Elected Officials, windows or windshields (whether open or closed) of fire vehicles, antique cars or motorcycles.

 

2.   PLEASE KEEP CHILDREN OFF THE STREET AND FAR REMOVED FROM WHEELS of fire vehicles.

 

3.   DO NOT use LACROSSE sticks to PROPEL balloons

 

4.   PLEASE THROW balloons SOFTLY, PLAYFULLY and NOT with HIGH VELOCITY 

 

5.   PLEASE AVOID throwing balloons that hit young children, women or seniors

 

Monitors will be along the route to ensure the rules are adhered to.

 

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation as we once again celebrate the birthday of our nation.
