Canal dredging available in Holmes Beach

Canalfront residents in Holmes Beach who need dredging or material removed from their canal, but whose canal is not already in the city-funded canal dredging project, can have the Millmac Corporation of Coral Springs do the job - for a price.

The company sent a letter to residents of Key Royale and some other canalfront property owners in the city informing them of current work sites where the city is already paying for dredging.

If the property owner's home is "contiguous to this project," said Millmac, the city has agreed to allow Millmac to remove material at a specific home site "should the homeowner request this work, pay for it, and hold the city and contractor harmless."

The price for removal of material is $36 per cubic yard, the same price as the company is charging the city in its current contract.

Unfortunately, the deadline for requesting dredging was Nov. 15.

Anyone interested in a late application can call Paul DeMariano of Millmac at 729-0784.
