The Park Board approved a temporary repair of the Park Avenue Boating Facility concrete ramp. On June 1, 2021, a section of the concrete ramp collapsed, resulting in the ramp’s closure for the remainder of the 2021 boating season. The temporary repair project will allow for safe use of the boat ramp from Memorial Day Weekend 2022 through Labor Day Weekend 2022. The total cost for the project is $34,500. It will include casting a new concrete topping over the damaged portion of the submerged concrete ramp, filling a void below the upper part of the concrete ramp, and repairing damaged concrete at the top of the ramp.
Costs for permanent replacement of the concrete boat ramp and breakwater at Park Avenue are expected to be reviewed by the Park Board on March 9, 2022. If approved, that project would begin in Fall 2022 and be completed by the beginning of the 2023 boating season.
