CK to County: not interested in dock

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

What if you built a large fishing dock that sits high above the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and no one wanted to own it?

That's the case with Cedar Key's “Big Dock.” 

The Levy County Commission which handled getting it built using Federal Emergency Management Agency money after a hurricane wiped out the old wooden dock wants the city to take it over. 

FEMA required that the new dock be made of concrete and that it sit high enough above the water to prevent it from being smashed by future hurricanes. Problem is no one can tie a boat up to the towering dock the way they once did with the old dock. 

In its Aug. 6 meeting the County Commission agreed to send a letter to the city asking for discussions about the Interlocal Agreement signed by county and the city officials in 2007.
