Handicapped Parking at Beacon Station

Does anyone know whom to contact about LAZ to correct the handicapped parking situation at the Beacon train Station?  I have mentioned it several times at Council meetings, spoken to LAZ management many times and even discussed the issue with the Beacon Human Rights Council and still nothing has been done.

Anna West replied to Steve Knowles's discussion Over-the-air TV in Beacon
"So far I have kept my landline, mainly because I was the only person who had phone service during the August 2003 blackout when even the cell towers could not be used.  After 9/11 many TV and phone towers were down too and the only TV was one…"

Anna West commented on Ben Royce's blog post 2 Beacon police detectives suspended
"Ha, I almost thought we would be there.  And as I paged through, I wondered--is it the big over time scandal of the very officer caught with his pants down? or the just the whole department over time scandal?  That sucked a lot of money…"

"We have an excellent chief now and some good police officers. Unfortunately, until the rotten apple long time history is cleaned up these problems will occur. But gosh, the union is giving unions the world over a bad name.   "

Anna West commented on Steve Knowles's blog post LED streetlights in Beacon
"So have you tried to find another contractor?   This is not a regular contractor, they are certified in LED installations etc, and they get all the supplies at the same place. Also they spread out and get assigned certain territories so…"

Anna West commented on Steve Knowles's blog post LED streetlights in Beacon
"The contractors are certified, which means there won't be much difference in bids. They have been doing something similar in NYC for businesses, and they are certified.  Why don't you try and find another company that is doing it…"

"Just listened to it, and there are plenty of things you forgot to mention. Now that I have the facts, I have totally changed my mind. 1)$7.5K is very cheap and worth it to see what they get.  It is nothing compared to the regular bill. Plus in…"

"Onnly watched part of it on TV, but agree with your points.  My other thought was the breakeven should be very quick because of the advances in solar energy.  Could be a Model A, in 2 years. BTW, it is hard to get the lights replaced when…"

"Gosh, the job must be torture. They can't keep someone there more than a year.  All that work for the search, what is wrong?  They need some sort of cultural consultant to figure it out."

Newburgh Beacon Bridge, discuss:

Why is that bridge such an embarrassing mess and dangerous to both workers and drivers.  Have  you driven from Newburgh to Beacon lately?  

First, they set up this lane blocking mess in the winter so it will sit empty for months. OK, say they had to do it at exactly this time of year, answer me this:
