Waldoboro — In an effort to complete renovations at Pine Street Landing, the Waldoboro Board of Selectmen approved using funds appropriated for another town landing to pave the parking area and move on.

The recommendation came from Town Manager Julie Keizer at the board's Sept. 11 meeting. Keizer explained that Public Works Director John Daigle said the amount of ditching and drainage trequired as part of renovations at both Dutch Neck and Gross Neck Landings would not allow time for paving them this year.

She also said the grant the town had received for the Pine Street Landing project did not cover the cost of paving the entire parking area.

The board approved moving $31,200 from funds earmarked for Dutch Neck to complete Pine Street Landing, which is the more heavily used landing, according to Keizer.

She explained the funds will be recouped next year to complete the other two projects.
