FOR YOUR INFORMATION
July 8, 2014: Beginning this week, PSEG has contracted to have Village trees trimmed under their electrical wires. Every five years, the trees under the electrical wires are to undergo this process. We have communicated with Larry McKenna (631.654.0473) with PSEG and Asplundh crew supervisors, Jim Nichols (631.578.6922) and Allen Lawless (631.205.4567) about this project. They recognize that our Village is a historical community with beautiful tree lined streets. We understand that trimming is necessary for safety reasons and to avoid outages. All residents are being notified in advance of the trimming on their street. Please call John Kocay, Village Clerk, with any questions and concerns. They intend to be in the Village for approximately three weeks for this project.
