(HEMPSTEAD, NY) April 2, 2018 - Town of Hempstead Supervisor Laura Gillen and Clerk Sylvia Cabana have announced that residential LIRR commuters using the Baldwin, Bellmore, Merrick, Seaford, and Wantagh parking lots will be given a one week grace period to renew their commuter parking permits as the April 1 deadline fell on Easter and during first weekend of Passover.
“Town residents who may have been busy preparing for and celebrating these important holiday events with family and friends shouldn’t be penalized if they forgot to renew their permits,” said Town of Hempstead Supervisor Laura Gillen.
“We’re here to help taxpayers, so we hope they take full advantage of the extra week,” said Clerk Sylvia Cabana. “Hardworking commuters deserve a break.”
The Nassau County Police Department and Town of Hempstead Public Safety Department have been notified of the extension and will not begin ticketing for expired permits until Monday, April 9th.
An application for a one-year parking sticker is available in the Town Clerk’s office for $10 and permits residents to park in any Town-maintained space in the Bellmore, Merrick, Seaford or Wantagh LIRR commuter lots and general commuter spaces at the Baldwin station.
Town of Hempstead Clerk’s office hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 8:00a.m.-4:45p.m, with extended hours Thursdays 8:00a.m.—7:00p.m.
