The Town of Hempstead will resume enforcing parking permits at the Oceanside Long Island Rail Road station beginning Aug. 1.

New one-year permits for $3 each are on sale for the period effective Aug. 1 to July 31, 2014. Permits will be enforced in parking lots O6, O7, O8, O10 and O11.

“As a measure to accommodate residents, many of whom lost vehicles to floodwaters during Hurricane Sandy, the Town of Hempstead had suspended enforcement of parking permits at the Oceanside train station while the area recovered from the storm,” Supervisor Kate Murray said in a statement. She added, “We still have a long way on the path to recovery, but Oceanside residents have shown that they are stronger than the storm.”

The permits can be purchased at the Office of the Town Clerk, on the first floor of 1 Washington Street in Hempstead, or by calling the office at 516-812-3513. Permits will also be available out of the Mobile Town Hall, which will be stationed at the Oceanside train station on July 18 from 6 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. Automobile registration or photocopy will be required.
