Environmental Hypocrites on the Move at Magazine Beach, on Charles River

Bob La Trémouille reports:

The following is Communication number 19 from the Cambridge City Manager to the Cambridge City Council at the meeting of September 17, 2007:

To the Honorable, the City Council:

In response to Awaiting Report Item Number 07-95, regarding a report on the timeline for refurbishment of Magazine Beach, please be advised of the following:

We were informed on September 11, 2007 by Richard Corsi from the DCR that the bid package for Magazine Beach was delayed once again, due to a change in the location of the control box for the irrigation system, which required further review and revisions to the drawings. He anticipates that the bid documents will be ready to send out for bids in mid-October of 2007. This latest delay will result in a construction delay, thus the field will not be renovated in time for next year’’s Little League season. No projected completion date was provided.

Very truly yours,

Robert W. Healy
City Manager
