Geneva City Council to meet Wednesday to consider Police Review Board appeal

The Geneva City Council is expected to vote next week whether to challenge a State Supreme Court ruling that invalidated the city’s Police Review Board.

Justice Craig Doran ruled in favor of a legal challenge by the union representing Geneva police officers, saying the board violated the collective bargaining agreement between the union and the city, as well as local civil service law. The council will meet Wednesday in executive session. Following the executive session, the council is expected to vote on whether to appeal the ruling and seek a stay.

Thursday, members of the Police Review Board held a news conference on the steps of City Hall, urging the city to mount a legal challenge.

It’s not clear whether there are enough votes on the Council for a challenge. The Finger Lakes Times reports most Councilors it contacted say they have not made up their minds on a potential appeal.
