INSIDE THE FLX: Geneva Town Supervisor Mark Venuti; preliminary budget, cost estimate for charging station, working with Cornell students (podcast)

In this episode, we talk with Geneva Town Supervisor Mark Venuti and get a recap of this week’s Town Board meeting.

  • The Supervisor has submitted his proposed budget to the Town Board. A special meeting must be held to schedule a public hearing at the board’s October 11 meeting.
  • There will be a 3% increase in town water rates, primarily due to the increased cost of chlorine and other chemicals used to treat the water. 
  • A resident wrote a letter to the board questioning why certain town fees are imposed.
  • There will be a trail work day on September 25 at the Kashong Conservation Area. Volunteers are welcome. The town is considering improvements at Kashong including picnic tables and an osprey nest. The town may also sell Kashong t-shirts as a fundraiser. 
  • The town has been chosen to work with the Cornell Design Connect program next spring. Students provide municipalities with low-cost advice in their areas of expertise and gain real-world experience.
  • The county is holding a mattress recycling day in Geneva and Canandaigua on September 24.
  • The county has installed signage at the town recycling center to make it clearer what materials should be put in which bins.
  • The fix-it clinic and free stuff day were rained out and rescheduled for this Sunday.
  • NYSEG has estimated it will cost about $65,000 to install two electric vehicle charging stations at the Town Hall. NYSEG will cover $60,000 of that cost.
