[ARCHIVED] July Monthly Update

Old Westbury Pond Update:

The Old Westbury Pond is 95% completed.  The Post & Rail Cedar fence was installed by the Village’s Department of Public Works (DPW).  Only a few more items need to be addressed and this project will be completed.  


Second Informational Meeting:

On Wednesday, July 28th between 5PM-7PM there will be a second informational meeting regarding the Village’s Land Use and Zoning Study that was conducted by VHB Engineering.  This meeting will be held in the main auditorium at the Central Presbyterian Church, 154 Old Westbury Road (on the south service road of the LIE), to allow for ample seating.  Detailed information regarding this study can be located on the Village’s website.  


Village’s Water System Passes with High Marks:

The New York State Department of Health every three years conducts a full inspection of all Village well sites every three years ensure that they are being operated and maintained properly.   This year’s inspection occurred this past week and everything passed with a perfect score out any concern or issue.  This inspection is a result of the hard effort that the Village’s Water Department provides each day to maintain the Village’s high water quality. 


Seasonal Tropical Storms:

With the arrival of the Tropical Storm Elsa scheduled for Friday, July 9th Village residents are reminded to be prepared.   Basic home supplies including meals should be at the ready and emergency contact information for the various utilities should be available. Driving should also be at a minimum so the roads can be kept clear for emergency vehicles and clean-up. Some key contact numbers include:  PSEG: 1-800-490-0075, Verizon: 1-800-837-4966 and Optimum: 1-877-936-4778 or 1-718-617-3500.
