WPCNR Westchester County Clarion Ledger. From the Westchester County Department of Communications. May 28, 2019 UPDATED, MAY 29:
In an appearance at New York Southern Bankruptcy Court Tuesday afternoon, Judge Robert D. Drain set June 27 at 10 AM for a “Final” hearing on Standard Amusements bankruptcy filing in which it asks the court to void the Westchester County termination of the county contract with Standard to run Playland that the county terminated yesterday.
WPCNR has asked the Westchester County Department of Communications to clarify the judge’s authorization of continued payment and debtor obligations and “relief” until that Final Hearing date.
Westchester County Executive George Latimer issues this statement yesterday, on being informed of Playland “former” managing firm, Standard Amusements filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy today, in a filing that asks the bankruptcy court to suspend the County termination of the Westchester County agreement with Standard Amusements to manage Playland entered into in 2016.
Mr. Latimer’s statement:
“We have been notified that Standard Amusements has filed for bankruptcy. Our legal team will continue to address this matter as it will now be dealt with by the bankruptcy court. At this point we are continuing to focus on Playland having a vibrant and successful 2019 season.”
