Happening This Week: LIPA Hearing, School Board and Black History Celebration

Lawyers for the Town of Huntington and LIPA are due in court Monday in the next step of a nearly decade-long battle over taxes on the Northport power plant.

Newsday reported Sunday that LIPA  pays  $82.1 million for the plant but wants a drastic reduction in what it pays because the plant’s use has declined. The town disputes LIPA’s calculations.  The Northport-East Northport School District $54 million of the $82 million LIPA pays.
