Hicksville firefighters were dispatched to a reported house fire on Friday, Aug. 5 at 9:21 p.m. Upon arrival, they found two homes side-by-side ablaze on Heitz Place off Park Avenue.

Maragos: Coliseum Development Important; Makes Recommendations for Lease Agreement

Friday, 29 July 2011 00:00

“The development of the Hub is critically important to the Nassau County economy,” Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos said at a July 21 press conference. “It currently supports hundreds of jobs and has the potential to create thousands of construction jobs and permanent jobs as well as increase tax revenues.”

Maragos said that he conducted a review to determine the economic feasibility of the current proposal to develop the Nassau Hub and retain the NY Islanders hockey team. At this point in time, he said, a comprehensive analysis cannot be completed as the lease agreement with the Islanders is still under negotiation and several significant terms have yet to be resolved such as revenue sharing, revenue guarantees, cost overrun protections and the Islanders’ commitment to remain in Nassau County.
