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].
