Vineyard Gazette: A long-awaited project to dredge a channel that feeds Sengekontacket Pond [on Martha’s Vineyard] is set to go this spring, now that Oak Bluffs has awarded a bid for project.

This week the town agreed to pay the International Golf Company a base fee of $300,000 to remove an estimated 6,300 cubic yards of sediment from under the Little Bridge on Beach Road. The town will pay most of that bill with disaster aid awarded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency as part of its Hurricane Sandy response.
