Parking Garage Fee Hikes & October 16 Public Hearing
Did you know that the town of Huntington will be trying to raise the parking fees at the Long Island Railroad Station’s indoor parking garage from $50.00 per year to $600.00 per year? It seems like the best kept secret in Huntington because I travel the LIRR and the large majority of my fellow travelers haven’t heard about this. I called Mr. AJ Carter at the town hall and his advice to me was to park somewhere else. He said “He didn’t tell me to park there”.. Seriously??? We have NO representation for the LIRR traveler – who, along with facing a fare increase on the trains this January will also have to deal with $600 per year to PARK at the station.
Meanwhile there is a town hall meeting October 16th at 6pm when the town will be trying to pass this bill – when they know that the commuters WHO USE THE PARKING LOT will not be able to attend because we are all on the train at that time.
Do you think maybe you can cover this story?? PLEASE HELP….
