Re: Official Word on East Cut Dredging


I have incorporated as a 501 c 3 and have our first board meeting Wednesday to start the ball rolling to get the funds together!  And no, you are not being naive, 1.5M is relatively easy to raise.  I have already started the inroad process on a few matching grants to get the money together.  I am doing everything in conjuction with the WCND and giving them weekly 'progress' reports.

If we can riase roughly 250K, with matching we will be there.  We have a meeting with the PM Chamber next week and outlining our strategies.  Also, I will be speaking with Alicia Rea USACE, Joe Hrametz's second, this afternoon to discuss other funding opportunities so we can the Corps to do the heavy work rather than the navigational district.

We will keep you posted!
