Welcome to our new and improved Village of Lindenhurst website! It was designed and donated by Efferent Media, a digital marketing agency located right here in the Village. We know that it has been a long time coming, but we wanted to be sure that it was a vast upgrade over our previous website, as well as much more user-friendly.
Our intent is to create a virtual Village Hall through which you may contact me, my office staff and/or members of the administration with issues, problems and suggestions. We hope that you are impressed with the improvements.
Driving Safely during Winter Months
Well, so far, we have had very mild weather as we move into the holiday season! We hope that this is a portent of the upcoming winter, as everyone remembers last year as one of the worst on record. Perhaps we will get a reprieve this year. We can only hope.
However, that is why Deputy Mayor Mike Lavorata and I want to remind residents that driving during the winter months can be extremely dangerous, especially when it snows. By driving with extra caution and adhering to the rules of the road can help to ensure safe passage for all motorists.
Motorists can enhance safety, visibility and mobility throughout the season by making sure that our vehicles are winter-ready. Before driving, be sure to clear all windows, lights and external mirrors of snow and ice, be observant of roadway conditions, and proceed at appropriate speeds.
In the event of a snow emergency, be alert to weather advisories. If you do not need to travel, then please stay put until the roads are cleared of snow and ice. If you must drive, then please:
- Plan alternate ways and allow extra time to travel to main routes and to your place of destination.
- Slow down, brake slowly and allow plenty of room between you and the vehicle ahead of you.
- During times of reduced visibility, watch for pedestrians, bicycles and disabled vehicles.
- Maintain your vehicle properly by checking your car battery and replenishing antifreeze and windshield washer fluids. In addition, always keep a flashlight, snowbrush, ice scraper, jumper cables, blankets and an extra set of clothes in your vehicle.
- Finally, keep a cell phone and charger handy.
As soon as you are aware that bad weather is on the way, make every effort to keep your car off the street. This protects your car from being plowed in or being hit by passing vehicles, and the snowplow has space to safely plow the snow. Generally speaking, when shoveling out the mouth of your driveway, throw the snow to the right of your driveway. Throwing or plowing snow into the road can create a patch of snow and ice and cause a hazardous condition. It is unlawful to shovel or dump snow into spaces reserved for handicap parking.
Village of Lindenhurst Holiday Celebration
I want to thank the Lindenhurst Fire Department, the Business Improvement District (BID), the Mayor’s Beautification Society, the Historical Society and the Village Administration for a wonderful Holiday Celebration on December 6, 2015.
Each year, the parades get better and better, and Village Park looked wonderful with Christmas lighting and garland that really added to the celebration of the season!
This year, a very lovely lady and long-time Lindenhurst Village resident, Babette Smith, was given the honor of lighting the tree!
Our administration continues to encourage residents to share their ideas, suggestions and concerns with us. Our partnership with the various civic, service and community organizations have strengthened because we all have the same goal of keeping Lindenhurst as a great place to live, work and enjoy!
Along with the Board of Trustees, our administrative staff and all the employees of the Village, we look forward to continue to serve the Village to the best of our abilities for the betterment of Lindenhurst!
Mayor Tom Brennan
