The County will be conducting a lottery to select 19 homeowners to receive a free advanced wastewater treatment system that greatly reduces nitrogen contamination – including free installation, monitoring and maintenance for five years.   The pilot program is part of Suffolk County’s Reclaim Our Water initiative, a comprehensive plan to improve the County’s water quality, restore the region’s natural storm barriers by eradicating nitrogen pollution by means of sewering targeted areas and implementing advanced on-site wastewater treatment systems. Residents are encouraged to log onto County Public Work website to fill out an application.

Applications are due November 14, 2014. After a thorough screening process, a random drawing will be conducted to select the 19 qualified homeowners.

**Please be sure to obtain a site work only permit in order for Engineering to inspect any on-site restoration, ensuring you are in compliance with Town codes. Call the Town's Engineering Department at (631) 224-5360.

The Filing Deadline for the National Flood Insurance Program is October 29

NEW YORK – The time limit to file proof of loss claims for policyholders affected by Hurricane Sandy is Oct. 29, 2014.

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) usually requires policyholders to submit a fully documented, signed and sworn proof-of-loss claim within 60 days from the date of their loss.

The magnitude of the Sandy disaster is the reason the filing deadline was extended for two years to give policyholders additional time to file claims.

The Proof of Loss document is included in the claims package that documents flood losses. The claims package should include:

  • photos and/or video of the flooding and resulting damage
  • a comprehensive, itemized list of what was damaged
  • receipts, if possible, for damaged items along with any other supporting documents showing the value of what you lost

As for filing, the location is dependent upon who wrote the policy. If a Standard Flood Insurance Policy was issued by a Write Your Own program-participating insurance company, the claimant should contact their insurance agent or the carrier directly to find out the proper address for submitting the Proof of Loss with supporting documentation.

To download a blank NFIP Proof of Loss document:

FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.

Islip Officials Stress Safety for Halloween Weekend

Islip, N.Y. – Islip Town Supervisor Tom Croci and the Islip Town Board are stressing the importance of Halloween safety to local families. On average, twice as many child pedestrians are killed on Halloween compared to other nights throughout the year. Some of the easiest tips to remember, yet some of the most important, include:

• Crossing streets at street corners or crosswalks
• Supervision of children under the age of 12 at all times
• Driving slowly through neighborhoods, taking extra caution at intersections
• Groups should also carry glow-sticks or flashlights to stay visible at night

“Halloween can be a time for fun, but safety has to be a priority for pedestrians and drivers,” said Supervisor Croci. “Everyone has to do their part to ensure that an evening of fun and memorable times doesn’t turn into tragedy.”
