US: Leland Township plans acquisition of dredger

Project Updates // February 16, 2017

The Record Eagle newspaper reports that Leland Township officials have cleared the way for the acquisition of a dredge to open sand-choked Leland Harbour.

Township board members unanimously approved the purchase of a US$500,000 dredge with more than US$200,000 collected through donations and additional contributions. The dredge will allow officials to clear the channel that currently blocks boats from coming or going.

A tight budget and a lack of federal assistance to pay a contractor to complete the dredging have prevented officials from dredging the harbour so far.
