Village Residents,

 

The County Executive has a call every day with Town Supervisors and Village Mayors. The call today at 4 PM included the following information:

 

Suffolk County Cases - 5023 up 885 since yesterday.

Town of Huntington - 761 Cases

The last report on Friday I saw had 5 cases in the Village.

Deaths in the County- 40

 

The trend remains upward.

 

We have a great Village that is a wonderful place to live. Please Stay At Home. Please take the advice seriously- Please social distance and do not congregate on our beaches or our streets when the weather gets better.   Our police will be strictly enforcing this on all of our beaches and the Town Beach that is in the Village.  Construction has now been deemed non-essential and we will close any sites tomorrow in the Village.

 

Unfortunately, there are people throughout the County not taking this seriously. Examples shared by Supervisors and other Mayors on the call today were truly frightening. 

 

You can reach our police at 631 427 2020 or 911.   I can be reached at 631 423 8291 or at hfmhuntbay@aol.com.

 

Please Be Safe-

 

Herb Morrow

Mayor

Dear Village Residents, 

 

I hope all of you are well and adapting to the current challenges caused by the Coronavirus outbreak. We encourage our community to follow the guidelines that the President, Governor, and County Executive have put in place. According to the latest report, there are currently 43 cases in Huntington.

 

If anyone needs assistance from our police, you can contact them at 631 427 2020.  If they are out on patrol you can leave a message or you can call 911. Please remember that our 911 calls are directed to the Northport Police dispatch. They know that calls from Huntington Bay are sometimes non-emergency calls that just need a police response. Do not hesitate to use that. We also encourage everyone to check on their neighbors by phone or email. Our police do regular check-ins with those who live alone in our Village and will continue to do so during this difficult time. 

 

Our Village Hall is open for the time being. We ask, however, that you conduct any business with the Village by phone or email. If something needs to be dropped off, contact the staff first. You can reach Gail or Danielle from 9-4 at (631) 427 2843. If I can do anything to help, you can contact me at (631) 423 8291.

 

Village Court scheduled for March 19th and the Zoning Board of Appeals meeting scheduled for March 26th are canceled. We will make a decision on April meetings late next week. Winter Brothers continues the regular schedule of garbage collection.
