Nyack Docks Are Done For This Year

Nyack, April 29 — Mother Nature did her part to make one tough decision a little easier for Nyack’s Mayor and Trustees. Nyack’s marina, which loses about $23,000 a year, will be closed for the season. The marina suffered almost $2 million dollars in damage during the March nor’easter.

On April 16 Nyack and Rockland County received word that a FEMA request for disaster aid to repair the marina and shoreline damage to Memorial Park had been approved.

The village board voted unanimously to close the facility for this season on Thursday as they approved the 2010-11 budget‘s 8.52% tax increase.

In addition to saving money, village officials thought the closure was necessary to secure final federal relief approval. “How can we ask for disaster relief funds if the marina is open and operating?” said Mayor Richard Kavesh.

Trustee Steve Knowlton says notices announcing the expected closing will be sent out to boaters who rent slips in the marina.
