YORK — Visitors of the Cliff Walk may notice a barge on the water at the north end farthest from the beach this summer, while repairs are made from a March, 2018 storm.
Selectmen recently authorized a contract with Maritime Construction LLC for $73,300 to complete the work.
Because of the remote location, the company will need to work from the water, by barge, rather than from land. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is picking up 75 percent of the cost, because damage was storm related, but has just recently given the town word that it has made the money available.
Also agreeing to the barge plan is the Maine Department of Environmental Protection. Home owners along the Cliff Walk have been notified that the work will be taking place. Maritime Construction has estimated it will take 10 good weather days to complete the work.
