GAS MAIN WORK ON COLONIAL ROAD

National Grid will be replacing the gas mains on Colonial Road between
East Shore Road and Windsor Road, beginning on October 30th.
The work will be performed between the hours of 7 AM and 5 PM.
The project is expected to take approximately 3 days, weather permitting.

During the work, Colonial Road, from East Shore Road to Windsor Road
will be closed.  Consider using Grace Avenue as an alternate route to or from
East Shore Road

 

ROAD WORK TO BEGIN ON GRACE AVENUE

The Village has been notified by Nassau County that they will be performing asphalt resurfacing on Grace Avenue between Gilchrest Road and S. Middle Neck Road beginning on or about Wednesday, October 23, 2019.  The work is expected to be completed in approximately five (5) days, weather permitting.  

While the actual work does not fall within the Village of Thomaston, it is likely that the necessary work zone traffic control and maintenance of traffic appurtenances, i.e., flashing arrow or message boards, traffic barrels and signs, will be within the boundaries of Thomaston.  

Expect delays as Grace Avenue (within the work zone area) may be fully or partially closed at times.

STORM SEASON IS UPON US

PSEG reminds customers of the following:

To report downed wires or power outages, customers should call PSEG Long Island’s Customer Service line at1-800-490-0075

MyAlerts, PSEG Long Island’s text message service, can be used to report and receive
status updates on an outage. Since this requires an account number for a one-time registration,
it’s best to do it beforehand. To register, text REG to PSEGLI (773454) or visit the
"My Account" section of the website at 
www.psegliny.com/account.
Once registered, to report an outage, simply text OUT to PSEGLI (773454).

Introducing Thomaston's Little Library

On Sunday, July 28, 2019 a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
for the Village's first Little Library, was held

WATCH OUT FOR TELEPHONE SCAMS!

Residents of the Village have reported receiving phone calls from individuals
claiming to be employees of utility companies such as PSEG.  These individuals are threatening to
cut off service due to an outstanding account balance and are demanding payment
via a pre-paid debit card or Green Dot MoneyPak which must be purchased at 7 Eleven. 
There is a similar IRS scam in which victims are told they owe back taxes, fees or
fines which must be paid immediately with a Green Dot MoneyPak.


THIS IS A SCAM. DON'T BE A VICTIM!

If you receive such a call, hang up. 
Utility companies and government agencies will not contact you by phone to demand payment.
