The state's Seaport Economic Council granted Manchester-by-the-Sea, $568,250 to add 500 additional feet of docking space at Reed Park with water, electricity, and pump-out facilities to accommodate transient vessels. The town will use funds to engineer and permit the expansion of the docking facility, as well as a portion of the construction. Three years ago Lt. Governor Karyn Polito joined Manchester-by-the-Sea Town officials and other local leaders to celebrate the re-opening of Morss Pier. Vital repairs to the Pier and adjacent seawall were made possible through a $327,000 Seaport Economic Council award.
