Little Bay Park crapper bids due
From Bayside Patch:
The city's Department of Parks and Recreation has begun the bidding process for the construction of a comfort station at Little Bay Park for which Bayside leaders have been calling for seven years, state Sen. Tony Avella, D-Bayside, said.
The agency will pick and vet the winning bidder and construction is expected to begin by the end of the year, the senator said.
The senator secured $1 million for the project four years ago when he was a member of the City Council. U.S. Rep. Gary Ackerman, D-Bayside, also brought in funding for the project, which also involved expanding a parking lot at the park.
The Bay Terrace Community Alliance and Avella held a press conference last year during which they called on the city to get the project underway.
