Hannibal to start second phase of dredging project in April

Posted:
HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -

The city of Hannibal is ready to conduct its second phase of dredging after starting the project in the fall of 2011.  The reason they had to break it up into two parts is because it was too expensive to do it all at once. 

Parks and Recreation Director Andy Dorian says he's expecting this process to cost anywhere between $60,000 to $90,000, which will come from taxpayers.  

Dorian said he will focus on dredging the boat slips as well as the back end of the marina.  This land is supposed to be under water and these boats are actually sitting on land right now.  He wants to dredge the docks so the water's about 5 feet deep, but right now it's closer to a foot and a half and he said without it, it would ruin the marina. 

He also made it clear if the city has to dredge again in a few years and there aren't enough boats coming into the marina, they will look at other options.
