Barge Removal Discussion Leads to Executive Session of Council

Updated 6 years ago by Tony Rutherford HuntingtonNews.Net Reporter

Huntington City Council went into  an executive session on attorney client privilege grounds following approval of an additional $21,000 for Nehemiah Construction which has been pumping water from the city’s barge at Harris Riverfront Park.

Mayor Steve Williams said, “We’re clearing things out at the marina,” explaining that “everything not city owned” will be removed establishing a “clean canvas” at the riverfront for future development.

Although Williams has worked out a salvage exchange that removes the barge that formerly contained a floating restaurant, the contract expires the first week of November.
