New Dock on the Way!

Sending on this good news from Arthur Reber:
Hear ye, hear ye ...
The RCO Grant was funded!
We wil have our dock/pier at Lighthouse Park restored.
The details are buried somewhere in the State and County documents (I'm trying to ferret them out) but here's what I know.
1. The grant is for $240,000.
2. The County is on record providing matching funds at 1 to 3 which means they will put in an additional $80,000.
3. The full $320,000 will be used to replace the wood pilings with steel ones and put in a new pier with the same footprint as the old one.
4. The project is slated to begin in late 2012 and be finished in February of 2013. .
I think we should all give our personal thanks to Mike McFarlane for his efforts in getting the grant and to County Council and Pete Kremen for their support in securing the additional funding.
