If things go according to plan, dredging could start as early as August with work done in both the marina channel and in Whispering Bay.
The contract with engineering planning firm Moffatt & Nichol will cost the city US$405,000. The entire dredging project is expected to cost $3.9 million, according to a report to the council from Building and Public Works Director Tim McSorley.
