Greenport Village officials discussed Monday night raising the cost of a ride on the carousel in Mitchell Park to $2.25, an increase of 25 cents.
Village administrator Dave Abatelli said that although the carousel committee opposes a fee hike, he believes the move is an opportunity to increase revenue. The carousel brings about $80,000 into the village annually, he said.
But Mayor David Nyce said he opposes the increase.
“If it’s making money, then I don’t think we should be raising rates,” he said.
The Village Board took no action on the proposal.
