Report Damage from Hurricane Ida to Nassau County OEM at 516-573-9600

Residents,   Last week our area was hit hard by the remnants of Hurricane Ida. Depending on which estimates you use we received as much four times the annual rainfall for the entire month of September in a few hours. The heavy rains in a short period of time inundated homes and properties even causing a landslide that blocked Stonytown Road.   Federal, State, and local officials are working together to try to help residents recover. I am asking all residents to report any damage they experienced to Nassau County by calling the Office of Emergency Management at 516-573-9600. Reporting the damage will help the County qualify for Federal and State disaster assistance and potentially help you access funding to reimburse some of your recovery expenses.   The staff, the Board of Trustees and I are committed to helping our community recover from this disaster. As we evaluate the storm’s impacts we will also look to improve our infrastructure and response capabilities to better serve all of you.     Brian Herrington Mayor Village of Flower Hill

Septic System Replacement Rebate – $10,000

Nassau County has recently launched a septic system replacement program available to homeowners and small businesses. The Septic Environmental Program to Improve Cleanliness (SEPTIC) gives eligible recipients funding to replace their conventional or failing septic system with a new innovative and alternative onsite wastewater treatment system (I/A OWTS). The Nassau County grant will cover half of the replacement cost up to $10,000. Many older septic systems, even when functioning correctly, pollute vital bodies of water with nitrogen. Conventional septic systems were never designed to remove nitrogen. In fact, the average residential septic system discharges more than 40 pounds of nitrogen into groundwater each year. Clean-water septic systems are incredibly effective and can remove up to 90% of nitrogen from wastewater and cost five times less than a connection to a sewer system.  Fortunately, these consequences are preventable with modern I/A OWTS septic technology. For more information and to request a free consultation, check out the North Shore Land Alliance’s Water Quality Improvement Program webpage. https://northshorelandalliance.org/water-%20quality-improvement-program/?sourceid=1014462&emci=78f336ac-e2b7-eb11-a7ad-501ac57ba3ed&emdi=865b97dd-02b8-eb11-a7ad-501ac57ba3ed&ceid=1366665      


Village of Flower Hill Approves New Garbage Carting Contract

Taxpayers will save $900,000 during the term of the contract while retaining service levels At the May 3rd Board of Trustees meeting, Mayor Brian Herrington and the Board of Trustees unanimously approved a new five year garbage contract in response to the Villages Request for Proposal (RFP) for sanitation and recycling services. Flower Hill’s 3-year contract with their current garbage carter was set to expire, and under the New York State General Municipal Law whereby any services contract with a municipality in excess of $30,000 must be put out to public bid, the Village was required to accept the lowest responsible bid.  The lowest responsible bid received was from Dejana Industries, saving Flower Hill taxpayers $900,000 over the term of the contract compared to the next bidder Meadow Carting. With an increasing amount of garbage being moved off of Long Island and softening in the recycling market expenses continue to rise.   “I am proud to announce the awarding of the contract to Dejana Industries that saves the Village money while retaining the same level of service. I want to thank Meadow Carting’s Staff for their dedicated service to our residents, they will be missed. DeJana has committed that residents  … Read more

Wildlife Spotting in Flower Hill

One of our residents spotted this beautiful red fox in their yard in the Roslyn part of the Village. There have also been reports of coyotes in the area. The Red Fox is the most common wild canid in the world, found throughout The Northern Hemisphere but introduced to Australia. With a varied omnivore diet (both animal and vegetation), they keep a balance by preying on abundant rodent populations. In fact, in North America, they may limit the spread of Lyme Disease and other rodent borne disease. They are essential to any ecosystem. Coyotes may have been habituated but displayed NO AGGRESSION or threats to the public. The adaptability of coyotes in securing new habitat is well documented , and Long Island (and the Borough of Queens , New York) is no exception, as diverse food , both natural and human refuse are being utilized by dispersing coyotes in order to survive .  Further evidence of coyote presence through their scat shows a natural diet, as small animal bones, possibly squirrels and mice, as well as Possum fur and seeds. As with other areas within the urban environment , abundant cat food placed outside as well as scavenging refuse on  … Read more
