The Cape Cod Times reports that Harwich, MA, voters will be asked to approve borrowing $6 million to replace the floating docks, most of the supporting pilings and the electrical system, fire-suppression system and other aging infrastructure at the town marina at Saquatucket Harbor.

Additionally, the harbor would be dredged for the first time in over 40 years to achieve a 6’ MLW depth in the marina portion and 8’ depth in the area used by larger passenger vessels. The project would also add WiFi service and a handicapped-accessible ramp for the passenger vessels.

Also part of the proposed project is new harbormaster’s office, expanded parking with improved visitor access, and the addition of a restaurant and a ticket office.
