ISLAND PARK - Island Park has settled a decades-old housing discrimination lawsuit, which will result in the village paying nearly $200 million to the government.

The payment is an effort to aggressively ensure that more African-American homeowners are brought to the village.

Chamber of Commerce member Glenn Ingoglia is happy with the settlment, and says that it's about time that the town put it behind them and move forward.

Residents are now concerned that they may have to pay for the settlement. News 12 is reaching out to find out where the remaining money will be coming from, and whether or not the residents will need to pay.
