Westchester County executive wants new Playland partnerPosted: Updated:
The Westchester County executive says he has no plans to salvage a contract with the company that was set to manage Rye Playland.
George Latimer announced on Tuesday that he will not renew talks on the 30-year contract allowing Standard Amusements to run the county-owned park.
The termination notice that Latimer issued to the company in late April takes effect next week. He criticized the company saying that it "launched a campaign to sabotage the success of Playland.” "We are looking for a partnership that comes with mutual respect. And mutual respect comes when you refrain from attacking what would be your prospective partner," says Latimer.
A representative from Standard Amusements told News 12 they're hoping to hear from the county executive so they can resolve this dispute.
