Clear leaves, debris and brush which has accumulated during the many storms this winter from your home, garage and storage sheds.
Safely store flammable liquids and home chemicals. Properly dispose of old paint containers, oily rags and other chemical solvents. On April 26th, Town of Smithtown is sponsoring a Household Hazardous Waste Event at the Municipal Services Facility located at 85 Old Northport Road in Kings Park from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. For information about this event please visit www.smithtownny.gov.

Remove any combustibles from around hot water tanks, clothes dryers and heating equipment. Remove lint buildup from your clothes dryer.
Change all smoke detector batteries as we spring ahead.

Stay safe and enjoy spring in our beautiful Village of Nissequogue.
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.
