Mayor Jimmy Weekley announced today that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has approved a $100,000 grant for dinghy dock construction at Barracuda Pier.

The grant funds will be used to build 110 new dinghy dock slips to complement the mooring field development being established in the Garrison Bight area.  City engineering technical services will be provided to complete the $102,500 total cost of the project.

“This grant funding will meet an important need,” Mayor Weekley said, “as well as contributing to a safer and more environmentally friendly area for small dinghies to dock.”

The mayor noted that the additional slips would also make the city’s many cultural, historical, entertainment and dining opportunities more accessible to visiting boaters.

This is the third grant the city has received from the Commission this year.  Earlier, funding was received for boat ramp construction at 11th Street and for a boat dock and ramp extension at City Marina.
