Mayor says city needs help to complete work on project of county-wide value

City of Port Washington representatives were to ask the Ozaukee County Board on Wednesday for help funding a portion of the breakwater repair project.

Mayor Tom Mlada, who was to lead the city’s presentation, said the city needs help in order to complete the breakwater work.

“This is not just the city’s resource. It’s used by people from throughout the county,” Mlada said Tuesday. “I’m going to ask the county, ‘Can you help us get across the finish line?’”

The city has invested its own money as well as investments from the Army Corps of Engineers, using that as seed money to receive millions in grant funding to improve the breakwater, Mlada said.

Thus far, the city has come up with the funds to install armor stone along much of the lake-side of the breakwater and portions of the harbor side as well. This summer, the Army Corps is expected to place a new walkway on the steel-cell portion of the breakwater, effectively capping it.
