Letter: Nassau County Turns Boats Into Sitting Ducks

Friday, 03 September 2010 00:00

It was bound to happen. The county marina in Wantagh Park lost its power three days ago. Park administration was notified but boat owners, who reside throughout the county, were not. To effect a repair the entire park electrical system was shut down leaving the boats literally in the dark each night. Two hundred boats valued at well over a million dollars were left unprotected by the police department and Department of Public Security, apparently because they weren’t notified about the problem by the parks department.
