The contract is for valued at US$157,000 but other costs for this stage of the project bring the total to US$200,000, which will come from the Assigned Infrastructure Fund Balance Reserve.
The costs include city-supplied management, at US$13,000, and another US$30,000 for permit fees. The actual dredging could cost close to US$1 million, a price tag that led several members of the Council to wonder how long the city could keep picking the tab for removing silt that keeps returning.
