Nassau puts up brownfield liens a second time BY WILLIAM MURPHY Long Island Newsday (NY) June 22, 2008Nassau County is trying to unload 18 parcels of contaminated properties - hoping that it can somehow get the abandoned sites back on the tax rolls despite the failure of a similar offer earlier this year.
This time around, the county offering statement has highlights of the various tax incentives available to the new owners, and notes that the state is working on new brownfields legislation that could provide benefits.
And this time, the county will not try to unload all properties to a single bidder. They will entertain offers for individual parcels, such as a marina in Seaford, or for common properties, perhaps accepting a single bid for all nine of the parcels scattered around the county that once housed gas stations or auto repair shops. The county's deadline for offers is July 28.
