3-23-2020 - Update From The Mayor's Desk:  SOCIAL DISTANCING

Good afternoon, Babylon Village Residents and Guests:

By way of an executive order and as another precautionary and safety measure, beginning today, Monday, March 23rd, 2020, Babylon Village Code Enforcement will have the authority to disperse groups of people/children in Babylon Village that exceed the guidelines of the State of New York and Governor Cuomo’s directive as well as Suffolk County’s directive which is as follows:

  • Gatherings should be 10 people or less
  • Minimum 6 foot distance between people
  • Any outdoor sports should have a wide separation (minimum 6 feet) between participants (such as tennis).  Close quarters sports (such as basketball) is unacceptable.

Governor Cuomo will also be considering a plan to reduce gatherings of young people at parks throughout New York State as well and certainly we will be sharing that with our Village residents and guests.

Should you see something, say something.  Please contact Babylon Village Code Enforcement at (631) 894-2949.  Please also feel free to contact me at (631) 669-1212.  Please access our official Village of Babylon Facebook page for up-to-date information as well as our website: villageofbabylonny.gov.
