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 Village of Nissequogue Police Department would like to remind all residents that the speed limit on Village roads is 30 miles per hour. Due to an increase in the speeds driven throughout the Village, the Village Police Department has implemented additional speed enforcement patrols. Anyone found exceeding the Village speed limit will be subject to enforcement action. The Village Police would appreciate all residents reminding any visitors and contractors coming to their homes to comply with the posted speed limit.
Also just as a reminder, in order for the Village of Nissequogue Police Department to deal with issues immediately, the 911 Operator must be notified. By activating the 911 System, the Village of Nissequogue Police Department can immediately address activities currently in progress.

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.
