It appears that the $25,000 match for that DCR grant to NBPT for the nourishment project will come from the Harbormaster Enterprise Account. There's a request in to the City Council to approve transfer of the funds.
The account has $368,342 in it ... enterprise accounts are ones that support themselves through fees and rates.
The transfer is in for approval (as opposed to going to a committee). DCR (which owns the beach) will cough up $50,000 for the project.
AND it appears that another $44,750 is coming out of the account to buy a Beach Tech beach cleaning machine. Hmmm, it says in the supporting documentation for the transfer that the quote was only good until March 31 ...
An additional $15,000 for engineering and design costs for the nourishment project are in for transfer out of the city's Free Cash account.
