Island Park insurer: Let locals pay
(Page 3 of 3)
Howard Schwach/Herald
Homes on D’Amato Drive were built under federal program to construct homes for minority homeowners.

Two years later, Gold, who had inherited the case after the retirement of Glasser, recommended that Island Park pay a $5.4 million fine —slightly more than $1,000 for every man, woman and child in the village. In addition, the village was to develop a plan and actively recruit minorities to move there. Prosecutors in the case also recommended that Island Park redo a lottery for the original 44 homes and build an additional 44 that would be sold only to minorities.

The case has been working slowly through the court since that time.
