VILLAGE RECYCLING CONTAINERS ON SALE

Village recycling containers are currently on sale at the 25% discounted rate of $15 each at the Village Hall between 9:00 a.m. and 3 p.m. These are the newer, forest green containers with a lid and Village logo (not the old lighter green bins).  The supply is somewhat limited, so they will be sold on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested, please stop by to get yours before they are gone.

 

LONGEST RESIDING RESIDENT OR FAMILY

In anticipation of the Village’s 90th Anniversary celebration on Saturday August 19th at the pool, the Village is looking to determine who is the longest living resident or family in the Village.  If you have any information, please email it to villagehall@stewartmanor.org.  Flyers about this event were mailed to all homes earlier this week, which is open to adult Stewart Manor residents and staff only.

 

BOARD OF TRUSTEES WORK SESSION AND MEETING

The regular Board of Trustees work session will be held next Thursday, July 6th at 7 p.m. at the Village Hall.   The next regular meeting of the Board of Trustees will be held on Tuesday, July 11th at 7 p.m. (please note the new, earlier time).  It will begin with a Public Hearing on a proposed local law regarding the hours of operation of businesses in the business district.

 

4th of JULY

The Village Hall will be closed on Tuesday, July 4th.  There will be no sanitation pickup. The recycling collection of newspapers is cancelled on the 4th and will take place on Monday the 3rd instead as mentioned above. 

 

The Fire Department will be hosting the annual 4th of July Parade on Tuesday, July 4th, beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Stewart Avenue. The parade route is as follows (the same as prior years): The parade begins at 10:30 a.m. on Stewart Ave and Fernwood Terrace North and then proceeds as follows: Stewart Avenue to Covert Avenue, then south on Covert Avenue to Salisbury Avenue, Salisbury Avenue to Dover Parkway, Dover Parkway to Cambridge Avenue, Cambridge Avenue to Tulip Avenue and then back to the Village Hall.  A block party and barbeque will take place after the parade in the municipal parking lot.

 

As in past years there will be patriotic floats, bands, antique cars and trucks and elected officials participating in the parade. Afterwards there will be the customary block party and barbeque in the municipal parking lot with food and entertainment for all ages.  Be sure to come out and enjoy the holiday with your friends and neighbors.  If you live along the parade route please try to keep your car off the street as to allow the parade to pass safely. Also please be sure to display your American flag. 

 During the last few years, the number of  reports of water balloons being thrown at our American Flag, Nassau County Police Officers, Color Guard,  fire vehicle windows and windshields, women, seniors; and children getting too close to large Fire Vehicles have increased.  Therefore, in order for all to enjoy and safely observe our country’s birthday celebration, the Chiefs of the Department in conjunction with the Nassau County Police Department developed the following parade rules for all attending and participating:

 

1.    PLEASE do not throw balloons or shoot water guns at: an American Flag, Nassau County Police Officers, any COLOR GUARD UNIT or Marching Band, Veterans or Elected Officials, windows or windshields (whether open or closed) of fire vehicles, antique cars or motorcycles.

 

2.   PLEASE KEEP CHILDREN OFF THE STREET AND FAR REMOVED FROM WHEELS of fire vehicles.

 

3.   DO NOT use LACROSSE sticks to PROPEL balloons

 

4.   PLEASE THROW balloons SOFTLY, PLAYFULLY and NOT with HIGH VELOCITY 

 

5.   PLEASE AVOID throwing balloons that hit young children, women or seniors

 

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation as we once again celebrate the birthday of our nation.
