About Our Village

'I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives.' Abraham Lincoln

East Williston is a community that is rich in history, steeped in tradition and whose residents are truly proud of the place where they live.

East Williston's deep sense of community is generated by our many volunteer organizations and committees and our residents' enthusiastic involvement in the programs and events that they offer.  Our Village Website provides much information on upcoming activities as well as general homeowner information.

Our most important volunteer organization is our Fire Department.  We encourage all new residents to consider joining.  It is a commitment, but one you  will find rewarding.  Another East Williston tradition has Santa Claus delivering gifts to children on Christmas Eve with the help of these fine volunteers.

Our Library is located in the Village Hall, across from the Village Office.  Its quaint atmosphere is enjoyed by many of our residents and the Library staff provides wonderful programs.

The Village Green, on East Williston Avenue opposite the Rail Road Pavilion, plays host to many of our time honored traditions.  It is the setting for Mr. Bunny's annual Egg Hunt, our volunteer Fire Department's Harvest Festival, Memorial Day and Veteran's Day Services, and the Village Tree Lighting Ceremony in December.  The East Williston Recreation Committee organizes many of these activities (see the Recreation section for current offerings). 

The Village Office is staffed by our Village Clerk Joanna E. Palumbo, Deputy Village Clerk Elissa Jansen and Treasurer Michael Delury.  They are happy to be of service to you and help you in any way they can.  The office hours are 9 am - 4:30 pm Monday - Friday and the phone number is (516) 746-0782.

Throughout the years East Williston has remained one of Long Island's most desirable communities.  In order to maintain the charm and character that keeps it so attractive we ask that you familiarize yourself with, and respect, the laws that have been designed to protect the integrity of our Village. 

It is through cooperation and voluntary compliance with Village rules and ordinances that the mutual respect and consideration Village residents have for each other is developed (see Administration section for some of the general guidelines).
