It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of former Mayor Arma “Ham” Andon on December 8, 2016. He served as Village Mayor from 1986 to 1994 and then as a Village Trustee from 1994 to 1996. The Village is grateful for his service; he was well respected and a humble man.  Our sympathies go out to his family and many friends. Arrangements are being handle by Follett and Werner funeral home.

WESTHAMPTON BEACH
FALL LEAF AND BRUSH PICK UP

The Village of Westhampton Beach Department of Public Works will begin the Fall brush pick up on Nov. 1st. Leaves and brush may be put out at curbside in separate piles during the month of November and up until Nov. 30th. DO NOT place your leaves and brush on the road! This is a serious traffic concern. Small branches cannot exceed 3 inches in diameter and 3 feet in length. Yard clearing is not acceptable for pick-up. No grass clippings allowed. Mixed piles will be bypassed.

Biodegradable, paper leaf bags will be available at the Village Office and property owners are
urged to utilize this service. Due to environmental regulations at Landfills, these paper bags are preferred over plastic ones. Please refrain from using plastic bags.

Brush and leaves put out after Nov. 30th WILL NOT be picked up; owners/residents will be notified to remove them from Village street right-of-way.

Due to other regulations at the various dump sites, the Department of Public Works will not pick up tree stumps, household garbage, household furnishings, rubble or landscaping debris.

SEASONAL CHANGES

Our Village has quieted down some since Summer ended and School began. “Indian Summer”, better known as Fall, is upon us. Chilly nights, chilly mornings, warm, refreshing days. An invigorating change of climate.   Soon leaves will be turning their splendid colors, time for apple picking, pie making, pumpkin carvings, Fall Festivals, Arts & Crafts Fairs, Farmers Markets, Oyster Festival, Sidewalk Sales and lots of seasonal entertainment here in our Village. Enjoy the months ahead, explore our area and the surrounding neighborhoods. Take a ride to the North Fork or travel the East End all the way the Montauk! Ride to and from Moriches Inlet to Shinnecock on Dune Road. There’s lots of things to do and you can still take a walk on the beach whenever you want! Make the most of these wondrous days as Winter comes soon enough and stays long! Happy Fall, Happy Holidays!   See you in the Spring!

Dear Neighbors and Visitors:

As a coastal community, we must prepare for any emergency-whether it is a hurricane, fire, flood or snow storm. An important priority, the Village of Westhampton Beach is constantly improving its own readiness through planning and hands-on exercises and by coordinating with county, state and federal agencies. Recognizing that preparation is our best defense, the Town of Southampton has released a new brochure, Be Prepared, (available in English & Spanish), it is updated, handy and compact with valuable information such as: important telephone numbers, advice on caring for the elderly and those with special needs, ensuring your pet’s safety, protecting you home or business and assembling a “go bag” and home emergency kit. You can pick up your brochure at Village Hall. In addition, citizens can also register for the Village’s emergency notification system “NIXLE” on the Village website home page www.westhamptonbeach.org.

We encourage you to use this resource to assist you in keeping you and your family safe. With improved technology and better tracking, we now have the means to obtain advance notification of severe weather events, regional emergencies and how best to prepare for them.
