My street is so skinny if I park in it only one car can pass. I told the guy I would take care of it in the spring. He agreed.

Maybe Frank wanted to pave his driveway but due to proximity to wetlands was not permitted to use an impermeable surface.

No. He placed rock over the ENTIRE length of his property between the road and his illegally high front fence. Basically he made his entire front strip of lawn into a drive way.

So there is your solution people. Dump 20 yards of crushed rock on your lawn next to the road and turn the entire strip into a driveway. I mean, thats SOOOO much safer then just parking on the grass. Or follow Village code to the letter and park IN the street! Because if it's stupid or dangerous, it's village code.

Not talking about his house. Do you even read?
Im talking about the very dangerous and large pile of rocks over the ENTIRE LENGTH of his property BETWEEN HIS ILLEGALLY HIGH FENCE AND THE ROAD that turned that strip of land into a "driveway".
So, YOU are wrong again!

Im offering a solution to this person, whats your deal?

Anyone that has received a "fine" for parking on your lawn...
DUMP 20 YARDS OF CRUSHED GRAVEL NEXT TO THE ROAD OVER THE ENTIRE LENGTH AND PRESTO = INSTANT DRIVE WAY. Village says its OK, so do it.
OR
Park in the road as code allows and block traffic.

Ok today my mother got this letter for having her legal car, parked by the edge of the road on the grass in front of her house, Who ever thinks they are now going to start Sh-t with me you can go f yourself, I will move the car everyday from yard too yard between both houses that we own on whitter, so keep it up you have nothing better to do then mess with an older lady, because she had a vote no sign infront of her house, the only reason she was against the village is because she is on a fixed budget due to being disabled from a car accident, by the way it was a 14 year old girl
That took out her mothers BMW and crashed into my mothers car, so please keep trying to fuck with me and I will just put down concrete in the whole front yard and make a drive way 200 feet long. P.s. I will pay the fine to do that :)


It is sad that the town is giving tickets for parking infront of your house. You should be able to park on the grass in front your home.. You own the property..

It doesnt make it right though. You can also burn crosses in your front yard and fly the confederate battle flag as well, doesnt make that right either. Try being a good neighbor instead of parking several junk bucket cars all over your property.

This thread started in 2010. I love when old things get re-hashed.
FYI. The village never came back to see if I laid rock out front and we have three brand new cars parked out there at different parts of the day. No junk.
I think they have bigger fish to fry.

Two years till retirement. Hope I can sell.

yeah! Stupid laws make money! How do you think the village will make it's money? With stupid laws!!
You were so blinded to get a village that you didn't understand reality!!! I'm glade a ticket was issued! If we are to have a village, lets do it right. What, you thought a village would just turn in to a utopia and only fine the "undesirables" of MB and leave the rest alone? Well, if you were gullible enough to believe Frank and his "village vision", i guess you are gullible enough to believe anything!
Mastic Beach is not a rich city like Huntington, so you have no right to be making negative remarks about those folks who feel harassed by the enforcement codes. In fact, many folks were just dragged into Mastic Beach village without their consent. They were happily living in Shirley.

Shirley was well swept up in the proposed utopia promised by MBVEC. But after viewing the circus that ensued, ran away like an old Monty Python skit.

The fine for parking on your own grass is $500 to $2000 for the first offense? Plus up to 15 days in jail. Second offense up to$5000 and six months in jail? This is just wrong. What a scam.

The rule is there for a reason-parking all over the place-including the front lawn or making multiple driveways makes the place look like a slum.
