REMOVE THE METERS FROM BAY SHORE NOW!

(Please sign and comment why you are signing)

Bay Shore and Brightwaters -  We must come together again to fight these UNJUST METERS. Remember Bay Shore is the only hamlet in the Town of Islip with meters.  Only our commuters must pay to park at the train station!   Only our Bay Shore employees must pay to go to work! And if we are forced to endure meters, meter revenues should go to Bay Shore, not into the Town General Fund! In 2016 and 2017 the meter program brought in more than $900,000 in revenues to the Town General Fund. From January 1, 2018 to September 23, 2018 meter revenues were $652, 000. Adding October and November 2018 revenues and  ticket and violation  fines, the revenues would again be close to,  or over $900,000 put in the Town General Fund ! Bay Shore has become Islip Town’s CASH COW!

Angie Carpenter,  John Cochrane and Mary Kate Mullen, all meter advocates, are running again for the Town Board in November, 2019! They have refused to recognize the unfairness of this meter program and they have chosen to do nothing to right this situation! Are four more years of their unfairness inevitable? Bay Shore-Brightwaters --IT’S NOW OR NEVER! The Town was lying to us when they forced a meter program on Bay Shore in 2016 that has hurt our small businesses financially, that has inconvenienced our residents, that has altered our quality of life.

On November 13, 2018 the Chamber of Commerce filed a lawsuit against the Town Of Islip. Town attorneys have made a motion to dismiss our lawsuit. They have even rejected our overtures to sit down and talk.  They will not reconsider and have given us no choice. NOW WE MUST STAND UP AND ACT!
