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
The Village will be repeating the very successful seedling giveaway that we held last year as our annual Arbor Day celebration. It turned out to be a wonderful contactless event where we gave away almost 500 seedlings. The Village is able to obtain tree seedlings from the DEC’s tree nursery upstate in Saratoga. We will have about 500 seedlings of both deciduous and evergreen varieties. There will be a limit of 3 seedlings per resident, on a first come first served basis. The event will take place in the Village Hall parking lot. As residents drive up, seedlings will be placed in their cars so we can all maintain safe social distancing.
The Village held an election for four trustee seats in March 16. The results are: Mary Jo Collins 121 Max Frankel 124 Frank Genese 120 Claire Dorfman 125
There will be an election for 4 Trustee positions. Please see the legal notice for details.
Please remember to park your cars in your driveways so the snow plows can get through. Once the road is cleared you can move your cars out to shovel or plow your driveway but remember DO NOT SHOVEL OR PLOW SNOW BACK INTO THE ROADWAY. This creates dangerous icy patches and is a violation of Village Code subject to a fine.
Due to the Covid crisis, Long Island Chief Justice Bogel has ordered all courts to be held remotely beginning December 15. If you were scheduled to appear, call the Court Clerk at (516) 627-5000 to reschedule.
Make sure you leave your lights on when you leave the house in the morning or put your lights on a timer. Leave a radio or TV on. The hours between dusk and 7 pm are prime burglary hours and a dark house is an announcement that no one is home. Set your alarm if you have one. Please make sure you lock your cars and don’t leave any valuables in them.

It was unacceptable that many residents were out of power for over a week. Let the Governor and other officials know that this is not right.
