NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — Officials are concerned that the departure of LIRR President Helena Williams could cause problems for ongoing projects.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone told Newsday that Williams’ departure means that the county will have to go from working with a long-term partner to a complete unknown.

“We don’t know what the new leadership is going to do,” Bellone said.

Under Williams’ watch, Bellone and officials in Babylon have had discussions about reopening the Republic Station in East Farmingdale to serve commuters working along Route 110, WCBS 880 reported.

Bellone was also worried about the construction of a second track from Farmingdale from Ronkonkoma.
