RYE - The nonprofit chosen by Westchester County to take over Rye Playland has suspended its participation in the review process.

Sustainable Playland sent a letter to Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, voicing concerns about a lawsuit filed by former Westchester County Board Chairman Ken Jenkins and assertions by the city of Rye that it has approval authority over the plans for the underperforming park.

Officials with the group say they've already spent about $6,000 and don't want to spend any more without more certainty.

Astorino is expected to meet with the chairman of the Westchester County Board of Legislators and the mayor of Rye this week to see if they can resolve the legal uncertainties surrounding the plans to restore Rye Playland.
