Uniondale, NY - April 6, 2017 - “Nassau County’s increase in parking fees for the rebuilt coliseum is offensive and a dictatorial oppression of its valued patrons. As thrilled as I am to see the successful reopening of the newly-renovated Nassau Coliseum, it is imperative that we address the outrageous $40 parking fee for event attendees. For a venue in the public sphere to assess that high a price for parking is nothing short of absurd and ridiculous.
“Lowering parking costs at the Coliseum will be a great step in not only encouraging visitors to attend events at one of Long Island’s premier entertainment destinations, but also driving and ensuring continued economic growth throughout our region.”
Assemblyman McDonough represents the 14th District, which includes Merrick, Bellmore, North Bellmore, Seaford, Wantagh and parts of Levittown and Roosevelt. For more information please visit his official website
