TO: HOMER CITY COUNCIL & WALT WREDE, CITY MANAGER
FROM: BRYAN HAWKINS, PORT DIRECTOR/HARBORMASTER
DATE: AUGUST 31, 2011
SUBJECT: APPROPRIATION FOR A DETAILED HARBOR SURVEY
There is a federal interest in maintaining the Homer Harbor due to our large commercial fleet and the commerce it stimulates in this region. Because of this, the Army Corps of Engineers is tasked with maintaining the project-design depths in the harbor basin. The Corps responsibility is limited to the area detailed in the attached diagram. The City of Homer is responsible for the reminder of the basin.
This appropriation will be used to produce the baseline data necessary to determine the actual depth of our harbor basin. The project will survey the large vessel portion of the harbor from the Fish Dock to JJ float. A calculation of quantities of material will be produced for any re-dredging that may be required in order to return the harbor to project-design depth.
Approve Ordinance 11-40 allocating $10,000.00 from the Port and Harbor Reserves for this project.
