It is very important to remember that all documents that are uploaded need to have unique file names. If you submit multiple documents with the same name (such as image.jpg) then each file will overwrite the last uploaded document.
All documents will be purged from our system at the end of the summer season. We will not keep any documents after this point.

To receive a replacement permit, the original permit must be taken off the vehicle (no photos) & submitted to the Parks Department. Please note that the permit is designed to shred when removed from the vehicle.
Replacement Sticker Steps:
1. Write the permit number down
2. Remove the permit from the car
3. Bring the permit, documentation of the new vehicle purchased/leased (bill of sale or lease agreement), and the permit number to the Parks & Recreation Department located at 151 Phelps Lane in North Babylon, Monday – Friday, 1 pm – 4 pm.
The Town of Babylon Resident Recreation Permit is designed to shred. If someone tries to remove it from a car window, it will come off in pieces. If someone tries to alter the plate information on the sticker by removing the sealant, the permit will shred and therefore become voided. Additionally Park Rangers and Bay Constables will be monitoring the parking lots to match plates with the plate written on the permit. If they don’t match, the car will be given a summons.
If your documents have been uploaded to your account, you do not need to bring them with you to the Parks Office. But if they were uploaded incorrectly or the wrong documents were uploaded, you will need to have them on hand.
