At Monday's Council meeting, Paul Gauthier, Marina Manager, presented "Marie Dressler" A Cobourg Success Story - Dredging Report.  The full presentation was included in the Agenda for the December 2 meeting of the committee of the whole Council meeting but extracts are included here:

DredgerOperations - In House
Harbour Maintenance:

  • Extensive work has been completed at the Harbour Entrance
  • Work has begun to reclaim navigable area in the Inner Harbour (photo at right)
  • Victoria Beach has been enlarged

Operations - Contracting
Completed projects for the following:

  • Town of Whitby
  • Prince Edward County 3 times
  • Town of Port Hope 2 times

2013 Performance Results

  • Contract work 250 Cu Meters (Wellington & Port Hope)
  • Cobourg Harbour work 250 Cu Meters
  • Total Income $160,000
  • Transfer to Marina Reserves $21,000

If the $21,000 represents profit, then this is certainly a success.  Even without that, the harbour is in better shape and so is Victoria Beach.
