The Seneca County Board of Supervisors will now consider the town of Covert’s request for $10,000 in tourism promotion funds from the Seneca County budget.
This, following approval for the request, was granted by the Supervisors’ Economic Development and Tourism Committee.
The town had previously requested the money as a portion of its $30,000 contribution to a three-municipality agreement to operate and maintain Camp Barton on the west shore of Cayuga Lake. The camp is being sold by Boy Scouts of America to help pay its legal settlement of sexual abuse claims against Scout leaders.
