    Pier Repair Update

    Talked with one of the Pier Managers and he said NOAA has not approved the date to start work on the pier as yet. There is no lumber in the parking lot as I would have thought. He said that if work is delayed we could be looking at a later than expected completion date. Let hope not April 1st is already getting into King Season. Just thought everyone would like to know.

    I don't suppose they could delay until next winter and start in mid December with the panels already assembled so the time would be reduced.

    NOAA approved the lighting to be done and now at the last minute says the state needs a biological study done before work can begin. You would have thought they would have told the state earlier!

    Heard a rumor yesterday that work may not start until as late as March. How terrible would that be? Hate to mention this because I have not been able to confirm that yet though.

    That'd be about right, make sure the rules and red tape are carefully followed, regardless of the effect on actual people. Sh!t. D@mnit.
    Long live the bureaucracy!
    I'd rather stand on splintery, rotting boards for another summer and have them wait until next winter to do the repairs, but that won't happen because it makes a little bit of sense.
    I may be getting grumpier as I get older.
    I may be downright scary when I get out of middle age.

    Will they actually keep the pier open until work begins or save money by laying off all the staff. My trust in any bureaucracy is microscopic at best. Thinking about a whiting trip.

    If the March begin date is correct and they don't delay until next winter then there had better be a real good reason.
