Port dredge case ‘positive’

Costin said the report showed the return was potentially game-changing.

“I am really encouraged,” he said. “We are moving in the right direction I think. We need to get this (study) to the powers that be. This is a very important step. This is one of the first hoops we have to jump through.”

The dredge permit application work continues apace of the original timetable, Costin said.

The goal is to have the application submitted by March with a permit hopefully in Port Authority hands by early summer. The hope is that state funding will be put in place for the coming fiscal year leading to dredging by the end of 2014 or early 2015.
