Mayor’s Message

I hope that you have all enjoyed a happy and healthy summer. While recent times have been challenging to us all, the staff at Village Hall and the Board of Trustees has been hard at work throughout, doing everything possible to keep New Hempstead running smoothly and safely.I am also very pleased to report that we have made significant progress on several projects which serve to greatly enhance our village for all residents. Read more about some of these initiatives below.

One lesson the pandemic has taught us has been the importance of having good neighbors to turn to for help and friendship. I am proud to be the mayor of a village in which neighbors truly are like family.

Please feel free to reach out to me or any of our board members using the contact information provided below. We always welcome your input and participation at village meetings. I encourage all residents to sign up for our village email list which provides meeting agendas and other important information. Please send an email to updates@newhempstead.org to join the list.

Wishing you all a safe, healthy and happy fall and winter.

Abe Sicker, Mayor

NEWS
Here is a sampling of some of the recent and ongoing initiatives taking place in our village.

 

    • Completion of the Village Comprehensive Plan – This two-year initiative examined and updated all of the village’s zoning laws based on resident input. The plan also opens doors to allow the village to access multiple grants for further improvements. Thank you to all who attended the charettes and public hearings providing valuable input. Special thanks to the Comprehensive Plan committee members for their efforts throughout the process.
    • Union Road sidewalk grant – The village has been awarded a grant to create approximately one mile of ADA-compliant sidewalks along Union Road.
    • Road paving cost sharing agreements – By working with our local utility companies, we have been able to secure significant funding for the ongoing paving of roads throughout the village. To date, most of the village roads that were previously in poor condition have been either resurfaced or repaved to create smooth, safe driving conditions for years to come.
    • Completion of CVS at the corner of route 306 and Grandview Avenue – This conveniently situated commercial establishment also added a much-needed left turning lane, easing traffic at that intersection considerably.
    • Village Hall partitions – The timely installation of plexiglass partitions allowed for the safe, expedited reopening of Village Hall during the height of the pandemic.
  • Improved processing time for permit applications – With the hiring of new inspection personnel, applications are being processed promptly and efficiently, minimizing unnecessary delays for applicants.

O&R cautions: If you get a call demanding payment within an hour – it’s a scam

  • O&R does not call customers and demand immediate payment.
  • To disconnect service, O&R goes through a multi-step process that’s regulated by the NYS Public Service Commission and NJ Board of Public Utilities. This includes sending written communications over a period of time.
  • O&R does not accept payment by pre-paid debit cards, by MoneyGram or any similar transfers.
  • Never arrange payment or divulge account or personal information, including debit or credit card information, over the phone.
  • If someone comes to your home or business claiming to be from O&R, ask for identification. If you are still unsure, call 1-877-434-4100 or the police.

Here are some other methods scammers use:

  • The scammer calls and says the customer’s bill is delinquent and instructs the customer to buy a pre-paid card and load money onto it to pay the bill. Once the customer puts money on the pre-paid card and provides the scammer with the card number, the scammer steals the money. The customer, of course, does not get a gift card and is still responsible for the bill.
  • The scammer calls a business or residential customer and says a glitch in O&R’s computer systems prevented the customer’s payments for the last several months from being recorded. These scammers then ask the customer to buy a pre-paid card.
  • Someone calls and says the customer owes O&R a deposit for a smart meter. The caller tells the customer to make an immediate payment by Bitcoin.  This scam usually targets businesses.  O&R does not require deposits for the smart meters it is installing at homes and businesses across its service area. The company does not accept payment by Bitcoin.
  • Thieves have been known to get into mailboxes to pull out envelopes and open those that may contain payments. O&R advises customers who pay their bills by mail not to place their payments in a mailbox until close to pick-up time.
  • Some scammers leave messages for customers urging them to call back. When the customer calls back, they hear a recorded message identical to the one O&R uses.
