City Council backs up BDC’s impact on development
Written by WBTA STAFF on February 22, 2018
The Batavia Development Corp received support across the board from City Council members during their latest budget workshop.
Council was discussing the $110,000 in funding the city provides to the BDC which includes paying Economic Development Coordinator Julie Pacatte salary.
Councilman Al McGinnis said he he would like the funding reviewed next year but that it might be OK to fund BDC this year.
After learning that funding for the BDC comes from the video slot machine proceeds paid to the city by Batavia Downs, McGinnis backed off his initial request.
