After the China selectmen’s Aug. 10 special meeting, Town Manager Becky Hapgood reported the four members attending voted unanimously to accept McGee Construction’s bid to complete Phase II of the causeway project for $581,805.
They further voted to transfer $70,000 from China’s undesignated fund balance (surplus) to the Tax Increment Financing (TIF) account for the project, Hapgood said. The money will be repaid to the surplus account after taxes from Central Maine Power Company replenish the TIF fund.
Phase II of the causeway project will provide erosion barriers and a walkway along the shore at the head of China Lake’s east basin. Work will extend from the west side of the new causeway bridge to the boat landing.
