Hicksville Gardens Oil Consortium

There are currently over 200 families participating in the Hicksville Gardens Oil Consortium (HGOC).  During the month of June the Oil Consortium Committee solicits contract proposals from various oil companies and on the last Thursday of June the committee presents the proposals to the membership at a meeting held at the Hicksville Public Library.  The members of the Oil Consortium then vote on which contract and provider they want for the next heating season.

Membership Terms

The contract period for the Hicksville Gardens Oil Consortium is from July 1st thru June 30th each year.

If you have a contract with your current oil provider you must be out of contract by June 30th in order that you may start with an HGOC Service Provider on July 1st.  If you are joining mid-heating season it is still necessary for you to be out of contract with your current oil provider in order to sign with a new provider.  If your current provider is Perillo Bros. Fuel Oil Co. and you are under a contract expiring other than June 30th you may still be able to join and your contract may be adjusted to end on June 30th (contact us and a Perillo Bros. Fuel Oil Co. representative will contact you and inform you of your options).

WARNING!   Breaking a contract early may subject you to an early termination fee!
