Hannibal City Council approves second round of dredging

Posted:
HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -

The Hannibal City Council unanimously approved Dredging the Marina for a second time.  The dredging will be done in the slips and on the south side of the Marina.  The project will cost about 81-thousand dollars.  

Some boats are already sitting on land Parks and Rec Director Andy Dorian says many of the slips are only a foot and a half above the water.  Councilman Barry Louderman said he voted to dredge the Marina to see what the future holds.


"But since that money is set aside primarily for parks then I feel confident if we can get it cleaned out good this year, maybe we can keep it cleaned out for a couple years then look forward to maybe redoing it or figuring out a way to keep it flowing out of there," Louderman said. 

Dorian said the dredging could start as soon as April.
