Hurricane Guide

Each season, between June and October, hurricanes can pose a serious threat to our community. While we remain concerned about our properties, the most important concern is the safety and wellbeing of our residents. We are posting a quick guideline in helping you prepare in the event of a storm.

Mayor Mike LevineSummer has begun, and it’s time for relaxing and enjoying all that the warm months have to offer. From boating to the beach to outdoor dining, there is so much to do.

I am pleased to announce that the Board of Trustees has supported the acquisition of the Copeland property, located at 3 Shore Drive, by the Department of Environmental Conservation through The Open Space Institute. The home was demolished and the property deemed open space. This land has become a part of the Flax Pond State Tidal Wetland in the Long Island Sound Estuary for the safeguarding of our critical coastal watersheds.

A very important issue this year has been the Board’s decision to have the Village become part of the Setauket Fire district.  Fire protection in the past has been through a contract between the Village and the Setauket Fire District, and the cost constitutes almost a third of our current budget. By expanding the fire district to include Old Field Village, the benefits will include, for the first time, giving the residents a voice in the fire district operations. We will now be able to vote in the annual election of commissioners, and on referendums for equipment purchases and building renovations that impact our taxes. We are working with our State Assemblyman Steven Englebright to have the process completed this year.

Just like all property owners during the warm weather, the Village has been busy with maintenance and cleanup issues. Our historic lighthouse, still shinning its beacon over the water since it was rebuilt in 1868, will be getting new windows. They will provide needed energy efficiency and comfort within the offices that house our village government. Other maintenance items will include painting and repairs where necessary.

One of the projects the Village Board has considered for this year is the Roadside Erosion Area Rehabilitation. We hope to have a new bid issued and the work scheduled before winter. This project calls for the installation of specific road materials to minimize erosion problems.  

As a small community, we depend on all of our volunteers who help serve this community.  A very special thank you to all those who give of their time and service to our Village.  From the Animal Warden to the Zoning Board of Appeals, your contribution is a valuable asset. This very website is through the volunteer efforts of Technology Service of Long Island.

Please browse our website and see all the information it offers. Our Village Code is available online, and is a user friendly program that provides residents with information important on building or renovating within Old Field. It has information on obtaining a building permit and requesting a variance, and serves as a guide for landscaping maintenance, improvements or tree removal.  This information is a quick online source in advising when a permit is required, the process for obtaining one, and the fee schedule. Check for forms and applications available for downloading online.

Have a happy and safe summer.

Mayor Michael Levine
