Port administrator says city can’t afford to make park safety improvement

    Port Washington’s 2015 budget won’t include funds to install a railing along the Coal Dock Park promenade, City Administrator Mark Grams said Tuesday.

    “You’re never going to be able to just budget $200,000,” he said. Given the state levy limits and inflationary increases in the city’s expenses, there isn’t enough room in the budget to add an expenditure of that amount.

    “We would have to borrow for that amount,” Grams said, and the city doesn’t plan to do another long-term borrowing until 2016.

    The city is also exploring a number of grant options for the railing, he noted.

    But just because there isn’t money in the budget doesn’t mean the city won’t install at least part of the 1,000-foot-long railing next year, officials said.

    Public Works director Rob Vanden Noven said the city plans to apply for a boating infrastructure grant that could pay as much as $75,000 toward the cost of the railing.
