Aransas County Navigation District commissioners, at their regular meeting Monday, Jan. 6, approved two engineering service contracts with G&W Engineers, Inc. for two FEMA PA (Public Assistance) projects.
The first project is for a partially collapsed bulkhead and concrete work behind the bait stand at the east side of Fulton Harbor.
“At this point it’s dangerous and G&W agreed to work up a bid package,” said Harbor Master Keith Barrett.
The second project’s focus is the Rattlesnake Road kayak launch.
Barrett noted Hurricane Harvey hit that area hard.
“It was basically wiped out,” he said.
The engineering on each of the projects costs $15,000.
A member of the audience commented the ACND should consider expanding parking at the kayak launch near the bridge on State Highway 188 on the way to Sinton. He said there is simply not enough room on weekends to safely park all the vehicles.
ACND officials noted that launch is not under the district’s purview. It is maintained by Aransas Pathways, which is funded via the two-cent venue tax.
