RYE, N.Y. — Lawmakers in Westchester are expected to approve more than $9 million in renovations to the pool at the county-owned Playland amusement park.

The Journal News reports that (http://lohud.us/2tE3A6g ) county legislators have been debating for the past year over whether to upgrade the nearly 90-year-old pool in Rye or to replace it with a beach-front dining plaza with views of Long Island Sound.

Under a deal reached Friday, the county will spend $9.6 million to renovate the pool as part of the deal to hand over management of the park to Standard Amusements, a New York-based private company.

The measure is expected to be voted on by the full legislature vote on Monday evening.
