FARMINGDALE, NY (WCBS 880) - One Long Island village is trying to get you to shop and dine there by easing up on the law.

There has been concern that people are not shopping and dining in Farmingdale because it’s a parking ticket trap.

So now Mayor George Starkie has decided to ease up on the strict enforcement to bring more people into the village to boost the economy.

But being more flexible on handing out the $50 tickets will come at a price for the village.

They will likely lose over $65,000 in revenue.

But, with more than twenty vacant stores on Main Street, the mayor believes it’s worth the sacrifice.
