Clearly a bailout for Suozzi family rubberstamped by the mindless Democrats without their using due diligence in
studying the financial aspects. Everyone wants clean
water, but taking the southshore sewage from 3 plants
and just forcing the same amount of sewage out of one
plant in Bay Park into the same bay is going to clean up
the bay without extending the pipe 20 miles out into the ocean. There are absolutely no plans to extend the pipe.
So the environmental advantages to the southshore is
negligible while the financial savings to Cedarhurst and
Lawrence are great. They say the cost to build the
pipelines to the plant in Bay Park will be 15 million...yeah right. This will be a financial disaster. We will save Glen
Cove 4 million annually...does the savings go back to the
Glen Cove taxpayer...no...The City of Glen Cove will spend the tax savings on something else...probably raises.

A total Suozzi bailout of Glen Cove. Now all the taxpayers of Nassau will pay for the Glen Cove sewer system including their massive debt. What a disgrace....

Are the financial problems that plague Glen Cove Suozzi's legacy from when he was Mayor? Mr. Suozzi trouble follows you and the citizen's memories aren't as short as you would like.

I love it, the Comptroller approves of it because of environmental reasons, but has no opinion to its financial side.

What a joke.

So does this mean that Bayville can now get sewers and stop polluting Mill Neck Creek and West Harbor?
