April 21, 2015- At the April 14th BPCA meeting, it was announced that the work to epoxy and repair the piles that hold up the esplanade will extend to the inside of the North Cove Marina. The south side of the marina will not be in use for any boating activity. The north side was not mentioned. It was previously repaired last year.
This confirms BatteryPark.TV’s previous stories about the suspiciously low level of activity in the marina at such a late date in the season. IGY Marina, which will operate the marina, claims that they are accepting reservations for boats to dock after Memorial Day.
Meanwhile, the community events, such as the sailing club and schools, and the programs for inner city kids, will not take place at all this year. The BPCA ignored the wishes of the community, evicted Mike Fortenbaugh from the marina, and now will let the marina sit idle for at least a year.
Dennis Mehiel, the CEO of the BPCA, has orchestrated all of the events with the marina. His president is Shari Hyman.
Governor Cuomo’s senior advisor, Bill Mulroy, has been made aware of all of the details ongoing with Marina Gate. Plausible deniability cannot be used a defense by Albany.
