“We have the equipment here (at city hall) and all of the documents related to the program,” she said.
Jeff Tuka, who is a teacher and coach at MCC, will be the director of the program.
Until the early 2000’s, the city and school operated the program jointly. The city recently announced that it could no longer to oversee the program due to financial and personnel reasons. The city was taking a nearly $10,000 a year loss on the program, according to Williams.
Genson said it is likely there will be an increase in fees. He said the city will also continue to maintain MacPhail Field while the school will prepare the fields. He said it is important that the program at least break even financially and not impact the school’s budget in a negative way.
“We plan on making sure the little league will run,” Genson said. “I think it’s important for the kids in the community to have it.”
