The City Council voted Tuesday to on new businesses moving into Glen Cove's Downtown Business District, with some voicing disdain for the move.
Concerns were raised by Councilman Tony Gallo and at least one resident that the fee would be a burden on businesses that they should not have to afford, though Mayor Ralph Suozzi and several Council members noted that the only businesses that would be charged would be those required to build new parking to accomodate their increased customer volume.
that building and maintaining new parking could be more expensive than a one-time PILOP payment, and Councilman Reginald Spinello said Tuesday that the PILOP fees are widely misunderstood, adding that the Council would "have to be crazy" to do something that would deter a business from moving downtown.
