Genoa Township Board Approves Increased SELCRA Contribution

7/14/14 - Citing the organization’s abilities and efficiencies, the Genoa Township Board approved participation rate changes as proposed by the South Eastern Livingston County Recreation Authority at its most recent meeting. Members unanimously approved the recommended rate change, contingent upon all other municipalities doing the same. Genoa Township’s annual contribution is $31,077. Supervisor Gary McCririe tells WHMI SELCRA provides a valuable asset to the community and recreation is something the board has deemed of significant importance. The SELCRA board recently voted to raise the annual per-participant municipal rate from $23 to $27. Officials say SELCRA can no longer maintain the current level of high quality, low cost services with the same contribution amount from member municipalities. Those include the City of Brighton, as well as Brighton, Genoa, and Green Oak Townships. The increase is expected to cover a budget deficit of $20,000 projected for the upcoming year, although officials say it’s only a short term remedy. Genoa Township board members commented during the meeting that they didn’t know how the organization has managed to operate as efficiently for as long as it has without any increase. (JM)
