The State of Wisconsin has granted the City of Manitowoc $800,000 to aid in the repair of the Carferry dock. The dock was damaged during the massive snow storm that struck the area two weeks ago. The total damage was estimated to cost around $1 million, as the apron needed to be completely rebuilt and the counterweight was broken and needs to be replaced. Governor Scott Walker announced the grant, to try and make sure the dock is ready for opening day, which is scheduled for next Friday. Walker stated, “The S.S. Badger is an important aspect of our communities helping with both manufacturing and tourism.” The grant was given using the Wisconsin Harbor Assistance Program.
