RYE, N.Y. -- Westchester County, and the company it is working with to revamp Playland, would each fork over $30 million under a new deal being floated by the county Board of Legislators' chairman, according to a report on lohud.com
The county has been considering a plan to spend $58 million on the aging Rye amusement park, while the company, Standard Amusements, would invest about $28 million, the lohud.com report said.
County Board Chairman Michael Kaplowitz, who said his staff studied the impacts of different taxpayer investments, told lohud.com that he was optimistic that the new proposal, while still rough, had a good chance at success.
Some lawmakers have bridled over the deal's length, and the price tag.
As it stands now, the deal contains some 11 capital improvement projects, including the restoration of historic rides like the Dragon Coaster, multiple media reports said.
