“In the blink of an eye.”  I don’t know about anyone else, but that’s how fast 2015 has gone by for me.  It has been a year of extremes, to say the least -- a winter we would all soon forget, followed by the first warm breezes and blooms of spring, then a summer reminiscent of our childhood, and topped off by a magnificent fall.  The weather seemed to improve as the year went by.  Let’s hope that the coming winter follows suit and gives us all a break.

I am happy to report that even with this past winter’s cold and really sloppy weather, our roads have held up well.  That’s not to say that we have not had some issues, but thanks to Trustee Whitcomb, our Commissioner of Roads, who has seen to all necessary repairs and maintenance, we are in very good shape.   The Village has approved and will soon be implementing a Roadside Erosion Project to protect our roadways from decay.  Timely maintenance is definitely the key to keeping our roads in good shape.

Trustee Owen has been very diligent in keeping up with the maintenance and pruning of our trees, and we all saw just how important this is when that atrocious windstorm targeted the Setauket/Stony Brook area back in August.  We came away virtually unscathed, whereas all of our neighbors were in devastation.  Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance.  I can’t say it enough.

In October, Lynn Dwyer, Assistant Director, Northeast, Eastern Partnership Office, took some time out of her busy schedule to pay us a visit.  Lynn works for the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, the organization that awarded our Village the 2012 Conscience Bay Stormwater Grant.  She toured the areas along Old Field Road where the 5 bioswales were created, and I am happy to report that she was thrilled with what she saw.  The areas are flourishing, and everything is in great shape and in working order.  It is deeply satisfying to know that we are doing our part to keep Conscience Bay a beautiful, healthy waterway, and know that it will continue to enhance the beauty of our environmentally conscience Village. 

Time is flying by, and starting in January 2016 I will once again be entering into negotiations with the Setauket Fire District. This is the single largest expense that the Village incurs – over 1/3 of our total budget -- and we will do our best to see that a fair and reasonable agreement is reached between the fire district and the Village.  

As the year comes to a close, I would like to say how incredibly thankful I am for all that I have, and I hope that all of you take some time to reflect on just how fortunate we are to live in such a beautiful Village.  The happiest of the holidays to each and all of you.

Mayor Michael Levine
