Here is an update on the Pier Restoration Project.   At our last Town Council Meeting, we awarded the bid to Consensus Construction. The engineers and architects are now completing the A1A documents needed to complete a contract.  These documents will be given to our town attorney to made additions.

We will possibly then be giving this document to a contract attorney for review.  We will be discussing the contract attorney review at our Town Council Meeting next Tuesday.   We still have negotiations with our tenant on the pier.  We need to set a date for our tenant to vacate so we can proceed with construction.  Our Interim Town Administrator has done a great job of coordinating all of these projects.

Please join us next Tuesday to hear more about the pier.


Town Council will also be discussing our plans to hire a new Town Administrator next Tuesday.  The agenda will include a discussion on how we wish to proceed in filling this position.
