Thursday night, the City of Geneva is hosted an event to honor departing City Manager Matt Horn. In December, Horn announced he would be leaving the Finger Lakes to join a consulting firm in Washington DC. In reflecting on his decade-long tenure with the City, Horn was especially proud of the $10-Million Downtown Revitalization Initiative Grant.

The City of Geneva held a series of public meetings this year to ask residents what they think of parking in the City. City Manager Matt Horn says there’s a lot of frustration with regulations.

Absentee ballots for Ontario County Board of Supervisors District 3 representing Wards 5 and 6 in the City of Geneva have been counted and incumbent Gregory Bendzlowicz holds a one vote lead. 11 absentee ballots were counted this afternoon. All 11 were accepted and favored Bendzlowicz 6 to 5. After last Tuesday’s election, he was tied with challenger Tamarie Cataldo 184 to 184.

Tuesday night, the activist group Tools for Social Change hosted a community meeting at the Geneva Public Library. The standing room only event provided community members with an opportunity to speak out on accusations that a City of Geneva police officer shared racist images on Facebook. Late in the session they were joined by representatives of the Geneva Community Compact.
