Water Conservation - Local Law 3-1987

We all want to keep the environment clean and green. However, I would like to remind the village residents that although we want to have beautiful lawns and flowers, we must keep in mind the village's law with regard to water conservation (Local Law 3-1987) is now in effect. The restrictions are:
Lawn sprinkling and garden irrigation only from April 16 to Nov. 30 of each year and only during the hours of 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The days a person may water are:
Odd numbered properties on odd-numbered days.
Even numbered properties on even-numbered days
Properties with no numbers on even-numbered days.

Automatic sprinkler systems:
All newly installed systems must have moisture sensors approved by the Department of Public Works. For more information please call 465-4012 regarding sprinkler systems.

• All home car washing must be done with hoses fitted with spray nozzles with automatic shut-off.
• Use of water for washing down driveways or walkways is prohibited.
Please cooperate by observing these restrictions. The police department has been requested to issue appearance tickets to those persons found to be in violation of this law.

Annual Test for Backflow Prevention Assembly Units

Residents who have in-ground sprinklers are advised that their sprinklers must have certification of their backflow prevention units.
Please take a minute to schedule an appointment with a certified backflow prevention assembly tester who is certified by the Nassau County Department of Health. If the test discloses that the assembly is not operating satisfactorily, please have the necessary repairs made and the assembly retested by the certified tester. On completion of a test showing that the assembly is operating satisfactorily, the certified tester should complete a Test and Maintenance Report Form and forward to Village Hall Department of Public Works. An untested backflow device is considered a potential hazard to the residents of the village.
If you have any questions regarding this matter, please feel free to call Steven Bayard at 465-4024.

From the Desk of Senator Craig Johnson: June 18, 2010

Written by Senator Craig Johnson Friday, 18 June 2010 00:00

Statement from Senator Craig M. Johnson
On School Property Tax Cap

“For years, special interests have blocked the passage of a cap on school property taxes. While such legislation has twice passed the Senate and is supported by the governor, it has never seen the light of day in the Assembly. As we have witnessed this week, Governor Paterson has the power to change that. I am calling on him to include the tax cap in next week’s budget extender legislation. Governor Paterson has a golden opportunity to secure a legacy as a friend of New York’s property taxpayers. He must show leadership, seize this moment and take this very important first step toward taming out-of-control property tax increases in this state.”
