Ansay gets more time to complete fish station

Port council agrees to new May 27 deadline because supply chain problems have delayed work on new cleaning area being built by Newport Shores developer

Port Washington’s new fish cleaning station may not be ready for use until late May, aldermen learned last week.

The Common Council agreed on March 15 to give Ansay Development until May 27 to complete the new fish cleaning station.

The city had required Ansay Development to complete the project by April 22, but the company sought the delay due to supply chain issues it is having, City Administrator Tony Brown said.

Aldermen noted that fishermen can use the fish cleaning station on South Wisconsin Street until the marina’s facility is completed.

“This is something beyond your control,” Ald. Deb Postl said in approving the revised deadline.

The new fish cleaning station is being created by Ansay as part of its Newport Shores development.

The firm tore down the old fish cleaning station so it could use the area for its development, agreeing to replace it elsewhere at no cost to the city.

The station will be relocated to the east side of the north slip marina, close to Washington Street. 

The new facility will be a wooden structure with a blue roof to coordinate with the marina buildings. The table will be relocated and refurbished with new equipment, providing the same number of spaces as there are now.

However, the structure will be a bit larger than the current fish cleaning station to allow more room for people to move around the table.
