Mangano Eyes New Skating Rinks for Eisenhower Park

Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano is looking to have two indoor skating rinks installed at in East Meadow, according to Newsday.

The idea would be to have a private funder for the project that would handle all of the costs, and the County would net some of the profits.

"The county would spend no money on this project, but enter into a revenue-sharing agreement with the operators to generate additional revenue to help the county hold the line on property taxes," Mangano spokesman Brian Nevin told Newsday.

From Newsday:

On June 13, the county issued a request for proposals from "qualified developers for the development of a public twin indoor ice rink skating facility within the limits of Eisenhower Park in East Meadow.
