JAMESTOWN – The lease to bring the Chautauqua Belle to Jamestown will be ceremoniously signed Tuesday afternoon.

Jamestown Mayor Sam Teresi and U.S. Steam Lines LTD are scheduled to hold a lease signing ceremony at McCrea Point Boat Landing at 2 p.m. today.

Last month Teresi announced that Chautauqua Belle will be operating out of the McCrea Point boat landing starting this spring.

City Council has already signed a multi-year lease agreement with U.S. Steam Lines, Ltd. to dock the ship at the Point. Teresi said the lease will run from May 1 to Oct. 31 each year for the next five years, with an option for the company to renew for an additional five years.

U.S. Steam Lines will pay the city $250 for the first year of operations with ‘rent’ increasing $25 a year.

As part of the agreement, the city will install a 30-amp, 220-volt, three-phase electrical service to the dock. Teresi said U.S. Steam Lines will pay all electricity fees for their operation.
