Harbor Park In Ellsworth Could Receive Face-Lift After Storm Damages

ELLSWORTH, Maine (WABI) - Harbor Park in Ellsworth could soon be receiving a facelift after being damaged by recent storms.

Next week, the City Council will consider a proposal from Prock Marine for at least 76-thousand dollars in emergency repairs.

Ellsworth City Manager David Cole says pilings and support structures have been damaged by recent ice and weather.

He says the condition of the park is not a danger to the public, but if the repairs are not taken care of, it could be a problem in the coming months.

"This is a got to do, not a like to do. If we are not able to make these repairs, we are not able to put out slip docks into the water that support about 20 boats, plus the state ramp this all supports would not be available for day-users," explained City Manager, David Cole.

Cole says the project can be completed by June.
