Reminds Residents of Outdoor Water Guidelines
July 29, 2015…With the extended weather forecast indicating consistent days of temperatures above 90 degrees, Glen Cove Mayor Reggie Spinello has issued a water conservation alert today to maintain the City’s water supply.
Pursuant to the City water ordinance, all outdoor watering activities are limited to the hours of 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 4:00:p.m. to 12 midnight on specified watering days. A resident’s watering day reflects their street address number – even street address numbers can water on even days and odd numbered street addresses can water on odd days. If you do not have a street address number, you are considered an even day. Outdoor watering activities are not permitted on the 31st of any month.
Glen Cove’s Code Enforcement and Water Department teams will be monitoring neighborhoods to ensure compliance with the current water restrictions.
Dear Glen Cove Residents:
The City of Glen Cove is excited to announce the adoption of our new Single Stream Recycling Program. On Monday, August 3, the City will launch this innovative recycling program, providing a much more convenient and environmentally friendly way to recycle. Your scheduled recycling day will remain the same, and all recyclable items should be placed curbside by 7:00 am.
Single Stream Recycling allows for an easier and more effective way of recycling; “All In. One Bin.” This means that ALL of your recyclable materials should be placed in one bin. Residents may recycle all items in their blue bin or in a standard 32 gallon garbage can with a Single Stream Recycling sticker affixed to it. Stickers are free for residents and available for pick-up starting July 30, at The Department of Public Works, City Hall, 9 Glen Street, Room 301.

Each year dozens of children and untold numbers of pets are left in parked vehicles and die from hyperthermia or heat stroke. Hyperthermia is an acute condition that occurs when the body absorbs more heat than it can handle. Hyperthermia can occur even on a mild day. Studies have shown that the temperature inside a parked vehicle can rapidly rise to a dangerous level for children, pets and even adults. Leaving the windows slightly open does not significantly decrease the heating rate. The effects can be more severe on children because their bodies have not developed the ability to efficiently regulate its internal temperature.
