City Hall looks at revamping Barr’s Bay Park dock
The City of Hamilton is looking at revamping the dock space at Barr’s Bay Park to improve public usage.
At a recent Corporation meeting, alderman John Harvey said the City had spoken with an architect about creating a design for the refurbishment of the dock.
The dock would be used by members of the general public.
The estimated cost of the design was said to be around $20,000, but other Corporation members noted that such costs were not included in the annual budget.
Despite the lack of budgeted funds, members supported the concept.
Said alderman Pamela Ferreira: “It’s moving forward, and we must move forward. I support it.”
Mayor Charles Gosling moved that the recommendation be approved, but only once funds for the designs have been identified, with the other members agreeing.
