RYE, N.Y. -- Westchester County could fork over more than $58 million to help fund construction projects at Playland as part of a amendment to the deal with the company that is taking over the county-owned amusement park, according to lohud.com.

The amendment would seal the agreement with Standard Amusements to takeover the 87-year-old park, that would also increase the company's investment by $5 million, said lohud.com.

Ned McCormack, spokesman for County Executive Rob Astorino, told lohud.com that the county plans to have the deal in place by March 31.

Additional details of the amendment are set to be released early this week. Standard was chosen in April 2015 to take over the park, added lohud.com.
