Officials in the Town of Oyster Bay now think that the cost of repairs in and around a 1,441-space parking garage serving LIRR commuters in Hicksville will cost about $18 million. The town had previously planned to use about $14 million in bonds set aside for the project. Officials posted a public notice on May 25 announcing the $4 million dollar cost jump, but didn’t elaborate on what exactly the money would go toward. Since its opening in 2011, the garage has faced a series of construction-related issues. Last year, town officials sued Freeport-based Peter Scalamandre & Sons Inc. and Mineola-based Sidney B. Bowne & Son LLP for “substandard work.” [Newsday]
