A visit.

 

This weekend I walked around the Lakefront. Nice day interesting day.  Liked meeting the nice folks from Indonesia, the older one of the group said how the Mayor remained her of Sukarno when she was a child but doing a far worse job, then Sukarno did.

The Daughter had questions on what was going on with the “Sea  Wall” so was I.

So I looked at what was going on and asked some questions

 

I saw this

 

 

I asked the “supervisor” on site what was going on.

He said that Racine County was doing another 400′ of the “Sea Wall” as part of fixing up the County’s Marina. What?   WHAT?

 

 

The supervisor also said the contract called for work EVERYDAY that the Lake was flat.  Wow everyday so this crew of 4-5 on a Sunday was getting double time? Perhaps more

Leaving the area I ran into two retired guys that use to work as dredgers at the time this wall was built back in the day.  The retired men thought the crew was making $200 an Hour.

Nice to know that Racine County has that kind of money.  Now The Root River needs Dredging a good 1/4 mile from the Harbor mouth. This will cost tons. Who will be paying for this should the county do that? Are we going to be doing that?
