As Geneva City Council members dive into 2024 budget talks, a familiar topic resurfaces: the future of the $4 million marina project.
The Finger Lakes Times reported on Monday that Councilman Ken Camera, in his final term representing Ward 4, is continuing his push for either a cancellation or delay of the project, which has secured over $2 million in grants.
Camera voiced concerns about the project’s debt, estimated between $90,000 to $100,000 annually for two decades, and the ongoing maintenance costs projected at $40,000 to $50,000 yearly.
While City Planner David West suggests that expected slip fee revenues of $150,000 would cover these costs, Camera remains skeptical, citing competition with other local marinas.
