If you are an Oyster Bay Town resident who drives a hybrid or alternative fuel vehicle, you are eligible for no cost “green” public parking and beach permits, according to Oyster Bay Town Clerk James Altadonna Jr.
“As a way of rewarding those who already have chosen ‘green energy’ vehicles, and to further encourage others to do so, the Town offers free ‘green’ permits for parking at the railroad stations and free ‘green’ permits for the Town beaches,” Town Clerk Altadonna said. “Our environment is one of our most precious resources, and I am proud to continue to offer this incentive to Town residents who continue to choose to ‘live green.’”
The Town Clerk went on to say that residents are required to provide documentation, including proof of residency, vehicle registration and vehicle bill of sale. The “green” public parking sticker is valid for two years. The “green” beach permit entitles a resident to get a “green” seasonal beach sticker, which can be obtained at any of the Town’s beaches.
Town Clerk Altadonna further stated that, for its part, the Town has been using biodiesel fuel in Town vehicles and has also been using small electric vehicles where appropriate. Other vehicles have been converted to hybrid electric/diesel, in order to help lessen our dependence on fossil fuels.
