I have been searching for 2 weeks for a lawn mowing service in the mastic area. Going by phone numbers on the web, which have led to companies out of business, or wrong numbers. I've had to called at least 20. I don't live in the area so I have nothing to go on.

Does anyone use a lawn service, and if so can you give me their name?

Thanks much!

Imagine that. Being able to use whom ever you want and not someone who greased the hand of the village. Because you know I'm not capable of making sure my contractors are reputable on my own. The village has to pretend they are giving permits to contractors who wont screw us. When actually they are just ripping off all the contractors who then jack up their prices to cover the cost.

I do my own lawn service, but I will absolutely not let any municipality tell me who to hire. I will give my money to whomever I want. I will hire who I want. I am perfectly capable of vetting my own workers. I do not need a government interfering in this area.

Do you really believe that we are better off letting the village decide who can do our lawns/be our contractors/ roof our homes/ remove our trees? I agree that government has no place in these decisions. If i choose to use someone who is not good at their job, then shame on me for hiring them. If they have a license or not, it is my decision. If they screw it up, it is me who will be out the money. STAY OUT OF MY FINANCIAL DECISIONS.

Folks, this is just another bash the village fluff piece, set up under the guise of asking for information. Just for my edification, can you cite what village code requires a guy who cuts lawns for others needs a village license?

Sorry to disappoint, but I really was just asking for a lawn svc. Not for me, but to help out my son who lives in Mastic. I do indeed live in RP and certainly didnt expect to stir up some political issue in mastic beach. If the guy doesn't call me back with the estimate I may be back for another recommendation, but maybe I'll just post in the shirley/mastic forums, if there is one.

There is no real difference between forums and if you change the location you will see this post. You will also see there is a lot of animosity on these threads with a few trolls using different aliases to foster their agenda (anti-village). Even my alias is copied by one of them.

Maybe this is why you should use a contracted with permits and ask to see them and then check with Village Hall.

i am not going to spend the day looking up codes, but i did call the office and they told me that you need a contractors permit / landscapers permit/ cesspool permit and there are more. i asked for a list of approved contractors and i was told it was not available online and i had to come into village hall to get it. this is not nazi germany. i do not need the village to "approve" my contractor. my money, my decisions.

If you try to get an "outside" contractor to work in the village,AKA NOT their "friends", it takes about 3 month to get the paperwork done because Tim B is SOOOOO busy policing other groups. True story!

i know they say all contractors must have an approved license/landscapers as well, but i cannot find it in the code. i called and asked, and they said yes they do need permits; so why can't i find it?
