Winterize your home to extend the life of your fuel supply by insulating walls and attics, caulking and weather-stripping doors and windows, and installing storm windows or covering windows with plastic.
Winterize your house, barn, shed or any other structure that may provide shelter for your family, neighbors, livestock or equipment. Clear rain gutters; repair roof leaks and cut away tree branches that could fall on a house or other structure during a storm.
Maintain heating equipment and chimneys by having them cleaned and inspected every year.
Insulate pipes with insulation or newspapers and plastic and allow faucets to drip a little during cold weather to avoid freezing. Running water, even at a trickle, helps prevent pipes from freezing.
All fuel-burning equipment should be vented to the outside and kept clear.
Keep fire extinguishers on hand, and make sure everyone in your house knows how to use them. House fires pose an additional risk, as more people turn to alternate heating sources without taking the necessary safety precautions.
Learn how to shut off water valves (in case a pipe bursts).
Insulate your home by installing storm windows or covering windows with plastic from the inside to keep cold air out.
Hire a contractor to check the structural ability of the roof to sustain unusually heavy weight from the accumulation of snow - or water, if drains on flat roofs do not work.
As the change of season quickly approaches and the days become shorter our Police Department would like to remind you of the following important matters in helping us protect your family, community, and property.
Alarm: Test and maintain your alarm system for both your home and vehicles and use it at all times.
Lighting: Inspect and service all of your motion and timed lighting systems on your property and within your home.
Activity: Report any and all suspicious cars, activity, and people to the Police Department by calling 911. Please do not leave this information on the non-emergency administrative phone number, you must call 911.
Property: Please keep your home and vehicles locked and secured at all times and never under any circumstances leave your vehicle unlocked or unattended with the keys in it.
Absences: If you plan on leaving your home for any extended period of time, please contact the Police Department at 631-584-5300 so that we can add you to our Absentee Patrol Check.This service affords you peace of mind and your home with additional personal patrol checks during your absences.
Please help the Police Department in its efforts in maintaining a safe community and remember, if you see something say something. Please report any and all activity that heightens your senses to 911 while it is occurring, not after the fact.

The Village of Nissequogue would like to share the following information which was provided to all municipalities by NYS Comptroller DiNapoli.
"New York is Holding $14 Billion in Unclaimed Funds... Is Any of it Yours?
Comptroller DiNapoli has made it a priority to reunite rightful owners with their lost money. This year, New York again set a national record for paid claims, with more than $427 million returned. An overview report of New York State‚Äôs unclaimed funds program is available at their web-site www.osc.state.ny.us/ouf
With the recent improvements to their online search function, the process is now easier than ever. The online search tool is compatible with mobile devices so users can check to see if they have any unclaimed funds in their name using any device: a phone, a tablet, or a computer. On average, the office returns $1 million a day to rightful owners. All you have to do to get the process started is go to visit their web-site at www.osc.state.ny.us/ouf and enter your name."
The Board of Trustees would like to remind all residents that they should make sure to notify their homeowner's insurance carrier that their fire department should be listed as the Nissequogue Fire Department. Since the Nissequogue Fire Department has a very good rating, this should result in lower insurance rates for Village residents.
The approved 2015/2016 Village Budget is available below. The Village of Nissequogue Board of Trustees is proud to announce that the 2015-2016 budget includes a tax levy increase of 0.0%. The tax rate has remained at $22.10.

Incorporated in 1926, the Village of Nissequogue is located in Suffolk County on the North Shore of Long Island about 50 miles east of New York City. The geographic area of the Village is 3.6 square miles. It is bounded on the west by the Nissequogue River, on the north by the Long Island Sound, on the east by Stony Brook Harbor and on the south by the Village of Head-of-the-Harbor and the Town of Smithtown.
The Village of Nissequogue is the site of the original settlement of the Town of Smithtown. Richard Smith, the Patentee, founded the town in 1665 on land deeded to him by Lion Gardiner and Wyandanch, who was the Sachem of the Montauks.
Within the Village borders, there is Delafield Woods, Butler Huntington Woods and the David Weld Nature Conservancy which contain many nature trails where residents and visitors can view many different native trees as well as other indigenous flora. Along the Nissequogue River Basin, Short Beach and Stony Brook Harbor are found many unique marshlands that are home to a host of native marsh grasses as well as a number of large and small seabirds.
Many species of birds nest within the Village. These include herons, egrets, ducks, ospreys, Canada geese, owls and red-tail hawks. Woodland animals such as the red fox, raccoon, opossum, cottontail and deer are common sightings.
The Village is entirely residential. Within the Village, there are no industrial or commercial installations or uses permitted except agricultural and horticultural uses or special uses which may be permitted and regulated by the Village.
PSEG has implemented an enhanced tree trimming program for 2014. According to PSEG, trees growing near power lines significantly increase the chance of power outages posing a threat to system reliability and public safety. Crews will be in the Village of Nissequogue shortly to begin this tree trimming program. If you experience any issues during this tree trimming program, please contact PSEG directly at 1-800-490-0075.
The Joint Coastal Management Commission (JCMC) is a joint commission with the Village of Head of the Harbor. The Local Waterfront Revitalization Programs (LWRP) articulates objectives for the preservation, protection and proactive development of the coastal environment. This commission is charged with making recommendations regarding the LWRP to the Village Boards. It is also concerned with water flow and drainage as impacted by development or construction.
