Dear Residents, It is with total disbelief and much sadness that I have to report the passing of Gary Sherman, our neighbor and selfless Centre Island caretaker for over 20 some years. Snow storms, hurricanes, floods, garbage and recycling pick ups- none of this kept Gary from his appointed rounds. He spent one third of his life taking care of us, some 20 plus years, and it was cancer that got the best of him.

A memorial service will be held at a future date. Our prayers and thoughts are with him,  Carolyn and his family.

Each year in an effort to prevent water pollution, New York State requires an engineering report showing stormwater outflow sources for all villages, cities and towns in New York State.  The report below is for our village.  Please review  and send any comments you may have to centreisland303@gmail.com

Stormwater Report-1

Centre Island

Centre Island is the second smallest of the 64 villages in Nassau County with just over 200 households. The 605 acre peninsula has over four miles of coast line bordered by Cold Spring Harbor, Oyster Bay Harbor, and Long Island Sound.
