Squabbling Ends, Boat Ramp to Re-Open

Good News: The boat ramp under the Auction Street Bridge will re-open for public use. Congressman Steve Cohen worked with the City and Coast Guard to structure the deal:

* Boat ramp is federally owned.
* City leases the property for 20 years for $10.
* Cost Guard has right to control parking, limit access during heightened security, and is released from liabilities associated with public use of the boat ramp.

Happy Boating, and thanks Congressman Cohen!!
