Manistee City Council to consider contract for marina dock replacement

The document also said that "the project was publicly bid with two bids being received. Great Lakes Dock and Materials, LLC $425,775 Fisher Contracting Company $467,525. The low bid is within the budgeted amounts for the total project."

Council could take action to approve a contract with Great Lakes Dock and Materials, LLC in the amount of $425,775.

A memo to city manager William Gambill goes into more detail on the nature of the bid. 

"Twelve of the 17 docks at the city marina were replaced several years ago utilizing insurance proceeds following a Mmeteotsunami event," DPW director Jeff Mikula said in a memo to Gambill.

The five docks, located at the east end of the marina were not structurally damaged and were not replaced at that time. The five docks, part of Phase 2, had already been designed and permitted during Phase 1. A $203,000 grant from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Waterways Fund was awarded.

Matching funds were also included in the 2020 Capital Improvement Bond in the amount of $248,750. The total from the project proceeds added up to $451,750. 

Also on the agenda is consideration of a new commercial riverfront lease agreement between the city of Manistee and Little River Holdings, LLC for property owned by Little Rivers Holdings, which owns property at 480 Water St. 

The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday at Manistee City Hall, located at 70 Maple St. Visit for the meeting agenda and additional information.
