A second list for capital improvements was approved by the assembly, but with funding coming from the state’s Commercial Passenger Vessel excise tax.
At the request of Assemblyman Spencer Morgan, Broadway sidewalk improvements were placed first, with a cost of $350,000.
“Broadway sidewalks are a safety issue,” Morgan said. “Safety projects should go to the top of the list.”
Second to the sidewalks was the Public Safety Facility with an amount of $3 million. Third was the Solid Waste, Recycling and Public Works facility for $4 million. Phase two of the Small Boat Harbor was placed fourth with an amount of $3,569,954.
Gateway Port improvements were cut from the list.
