Just down at the channel today and noticed stakes on the island side from the dog park the rest of the way south to the swim area. I am not a rocket scientist by any means but I am thinking they are ready to continue building the 'wall'. Why in the world would you not do this Dec-Feb? One more example of heads up arses. Don't give me 'we got the funding now and have to do it now BS'.

That is a SLIF Grant funded project. The SLIF Grants didn't receive final legislative approval until mid December. Then agreements had to be sent, signed and returned, pushing it into January. No "work" could be done until the City received the agreements back from State Parks.

Proposals, engineering, specs, bid advertising and opening, contract acceptance and other such things take time. I'm surprised they're getting started on it so soon.

They couldn't delay the project until next winter, since there's a specific timetable requirement for completion of the grant project. Also, if the City didn't begin work and using the funds there was a possibility that the Governor would see all that money laying around and strip it to help alleviate the State Budget crisis.

Funds are reimbursed after the City pays the bills. Until the City submits for reimbursement, that money is sitting in a State Park Account.

There may be things that LHC appears to SNAFU, but this one is out of their hands. This is the same grant program that I deal with, so I know of what I speak.

They might want to consider some stairs, my wife broke her foot Saturday trying to get down from the wall to the beach.............
That would require them to have some common sense.:)sphss How hard would it have been to make some stairs along the wall so people could get up and down from the sidewalk?

I bought a small plastic ladder to get in the front of the boat and it works great for the wall too.
