Good day, Babylon Village Residents. I hope you and your families are healthy and doing well. These are very difficult times for all of us and we are all coping as best we can. Our lives have been turned upside down and the routines we took for granted are no longer there. At Village Hall, we have had to make many decisions the last few months that have been very difficult. We have executive orders from the Governor as well as our own consideration for health and safety of our residents within the confines of our village. Each decision that we make is given much consideration with input from town, county and state officials as well as members of the community.

 Recently, the Towns of Brookhaven, Islip, Huntington, Smithtown and Babylon announced that they would all be closing community pools available this summer due to the spread of COVID-19. The Village Board agrees with Supervisor Rich Schaffer who announced, "after much consideration, we unfortunately do not believe that we can make our pools available this summer in a manner that is safe for both our residents and employees." We are in complete agreement with Supervisor Schaffer on this issue. Therefore, the Gilbert C. Hanse Municipal Pool will not be opening this summer.

 This was an extremely difficult decision to make as we all know that many of our residents enjoy the Village pool and all the activities it offers. It is a wonderful facility and Trustee Tony Davida has made it the jewel of Babylon Village. However, we feel that in the best interest of public health, it would be best to close the pool this summer.

 With health and safety as the priority, all our Village Summer Recreation Programs will not be opening as well for this summer season. However, we are in the process of having a "summer fun" program for the children which will be announced soon.

 This will be a difficult summer for all of us but we will get through it. Babylon Village has dealt with the devastation of Superstorm Sandy and the effects of numerous hurricanes that left us with many problems. But we got through it. And we will get through this because we are BABYLON VILLAGE.

 Continue to remain safe, practice social distancing, wear facial coverings. We are looking forward to our downtown business district reopening and soon. May God continue to bless you and your families, the Village of Babylon and the United States of America.

 Sincerely,
Mayor Ralph A. Scordino
Village of Babylon

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.
