Village of Williston Park
Schools have opened or will be opening next week, so itís time to remind all to drive responsibility in order to ensure a safe environment for our children. Slow down, stop at stop signs and obey all traffic devices. I hear many times that drivers passing through the Village ignore the rules of the road, yet, the reality is, that many unsafe drivers are Village residents. Our great Village is made up of children, adults and seniors who walk, jog, and run on our sidewalks and streets. Be mindful of their safety and again PLEASE DRIVE SAFELY and CAUSIOUSLY! I wish all our youth returning to school good luck, and remind them to work hard and enjoy the school year.
On July 22, 2017, former Mayor Roger J. Fay celebrated his 100th Birthday, with family and friends at Sangria 71. As a tribute, on August 15th, at the Roger J. Fay Williston Park Pool, at the Annual Volunteer-Employee Appreciation Night, Roger was honored by over a 150 friends and family. While the event also recognized our Village Volunteers and Employees, Roger was the man of the hour. Roger J. Fay was Mayor of Williston Park from 1960 until 1968, while previously serving as Trustee. While Mayor, Roger oversaw the expansion of the Village Hall, the building of the Fire House, a major installation of a water main that runs from the water tower to William Street and of course the building of the pool and its complex, which bears his name.
