Harbor Construction Nearly Done in New Baltimore
The finishing touches are to be placed on the public boat docks in spring.
Construction on the public boat docks along Anchor Bay is near completion.
Finishing touches will be done in spring, but a bulk of the construction took place this winter.
There will be 10-finger docks that will allow 16 boats in the public harbor in what's known as the old beach section of Walter and Mary Burke Park.
The creation of a public dock aims to lure more visitors to the city's waterfront and nearby businesses in the historic downtown. The city secured a $240,000 Port Authority grant for the boat slips and a 24-foot police patrol boat and is matching the grant with $25,000 from the Walter and Mary Burke Fund.
