Update on the Proposed Settlement between Nassau County & LIPA January 27, 2021

Today we were advised that the deadline LIPA set for the acceptance of its offer to the County has been extended through March 31, 2021. As expressed to you at Monday’s Public Meeting, the February 28, 2021 deadline arbitrarily set by LIPA for approval of any possible settlement was highly unrealistic and totally unworkable, specifically since neither LIPA nor the County had provided us with updated calculations regarding the tax implications and impact on the Island Park community, and particularly objectionable in light of the lack of communication with the School District and the community before the imposition of the deadline. We will continue the fight in the interest of the School District and the Island Park community, exploring and considering all options to bring about the best possible outcome for all of us.

LIPA-Northport/E Northport Settlement Announced in Newsday

It has been reported in Newsday that the Northport/ East Northport school district has apparently authorized a settlement in principle with LIPA. We are greatly disappointed that they have apparently given up the fight in Court against LIPA without consulting with the Island Park school board and the other stakeholders who have jointly resisted LIPA’s efforts to decimate our tax base. We plan on attending the public hearing Northport is scheduling next week on the proposed settlement and will make our views known. [See: https://www.newsday.com/long-island/politics/lipa-northport-tax-settlement-1.46565390?fbclid=IwAR1RjeOR7zywy0s3kcbGZQNFZiQF_4kd9NBK7j4BiXrQQ0R5FM71zvuwqaA].
