Jan 27, 2013 Full story: Newsday 14

I think inviting some of the residents would be a much wiser move.

If you wish to avoid pitfalls in forming a village don't ask the Mastic Beach clowns any thing. They specialize in pitfalls just don't do any thing they have done.Better yet don't form a villge. Our maybe it will work for you (with out their help) you are not up to your ears in Mastoids.

Don't go to Mastic for advice,bad move. The people running it are only in it for money and screw the home owners. So sorry this ever became a village being run by idiots.

Hampton Bays you must first teach your people to smoke the crack then make them wear undewear outside their pants.Act like wiggers also may help evolve your peeps into Mastoids.

Hampton Bays is asking Mastic Beach for advise ? Really ? Maybe it's true, because I heard that the Shop keepers on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills were asking the Shop keepers on Amsterdam Ave in Harlem for advice. AND--I also hear that Obama has contacted the Iranian Holy Man for advice on how to subvert and destroy a country. Well, at least one of these sounds legitimate.

Maybe they are asking village officials for advice, and then going to do the exact opposite of what they are told.

Why does MBV even have a facebook page? They cant even keep the official website of the village updated in a timely manner. meeting minutes are usually two to three months behind.

I have and it does not seem to be the norm, thats why I have an issue with the 3-4 month window present with the village.
