In my eyes this is a crime. This is why I posted it here.


MINEOLA - Nassau lawmakers have passed a series of fee increases to help balance the budget, raising the costs for use of county pools, parks and golf courses, among other things.

County Executive Ed Mangano proposed the fees to help pay for new labor contracts with police and municipal unions. The measure aims to raise $15 million and it includes higher fees at county parks and golf courses.

It raises admission by $1 at county museums, and $1 at Old Bethpage Village Restoration. It also raises traffic and parking violation fees.

Some Democrats say it's nothing more than a disguised tax increase. Legislator David Denenberg says it's the second user-fee hike in less than two years, and adds that it won't come close to covering the labor contract increases that totals $130 million.

Some argued at a Legislature meeting today that these increased fees should not be imposed on veterans and seniors.

The increases will take effect once Mangano officially signs the legislation into law.

Of course this means the rates for Nassau range are going up too. I read what the proposal called for:

$12/hour-residents with leisure pass.
$25/hour- non residents and residents without leisure pass.

Nassau based clubs will now pay $22/hour.

They are certainly pricing out non residents now, at a time when the range has seen a significant decline in people going there. Congrats to all our Nassau legislatures who continue to push Nassau County into financial ruin.

Sounds like an opportunity for Prince Andy to get some votes for November from the LI gun crowd with some lifetime license bullchip like he did with NYS hunting/fishing licenses. I know the Range is a county facility, but where ambition is involved, nothing holds back Il Duce.

We are the LI gun crowd, and no one is being fooled by Cuomo's olive branch offerings. And neither are we fooled by the politicians raising fees in Nassau County. Just another way they pick our pockets.

WE aren't being fooled, but never underestimate the number and complacency of Fudds.
