Decals: 2017 Vehicle Decals were mailed out to property owners in the April water bills. If you would like additional decals, you may obtain two more at Town Hall. It is the property owner's responsibility to distribute decals to their tenants if you own a fulltime rental property.

The decals are your passes to get back onto the island to check your property in the event an emergency situation would necessitate restricting access to the island. Decals must be displayed in the lower left-hand corner of the windshield, where they are not obstructed by any other items. Officials must be able to clearly read the decal from outside the vehicle.  Please note that re-entry will not be allowed if a current, intact decal is not affixed to the windshield as designated. It is important that you place your decals on your vehicles immediately to avoid misplacing the decals.

Curbside Trash Collection: All carts must be placed at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on collection days. Waste Industries has notified us that they will no longer remove cans from homeowners’ racks. This service has not been included in our contract with Waste Industries for years, however they were lenient and continued removing the cans from the racks when homeowners were not in compliance.

Make sure to have your carts by the curb by 6:00 a.m. on collection day to avoid your trash not being collected.

Kayak Launch: The Town has two kayak launches for the public's enjoyment at Bridgeview Park.  The launches are part of our Parks and Recreation Trust Fund grant project.
