Pier ceremony Nov. 7

Anna Maria and Florida Department of Transportation officials will hold a ceremony at 3 p.m. Monday, Nov. 7, at the City Pier entrance to officially open the Anna Maria City Pier boardwalk.

The $858,000 project completed in early October was funded through a federal grant administered by the DOT. Construction began in mid-May.

The project features an 850-foot-long boardwalk along the shoreline from the North Bay Boulevard humpback bridge to about 100 yards south of the pier entrance. One of the two shelters remodeled at the pier entrance also serves as a trolley stop for the Island trolley.

      Anna Maria Commissioner Jo Ann Mattick wrote the grant application in 2006 before she was elected to the commission and has followed the project through to completion.

    Very Nice, but $858,000? Must be gold in those boards!
