Amherstburg town council was told Monday night there was no specific money allocated federally for the demolition of the former Boblo dock on Front Road South. CAO Valerie Critchley said her contact at the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) stated while there is no funding identified specifically for the removal of the dock, the DFO would look through existing budgets to see if they can find any money for the project. Councillor Peter Courtney said it was “terrible” that no money was identified specifically for the project, and suggested the town remove it and bill the federal government. Critchley advised against that. Council, through a motion from Councillor Don McArthur, directed Mayor Michael Prue follow up with Essex MP Chris Lewis and Windsor-Tecumseh MP Irek Kusmierczyk.
