Canal Re-Watering Comes Back Around

March 5th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

Tonight’s Cumberland Mayor and City Council meeting sees an item on the consent agenda to enter into an agreement with the Army Corps of Engineers concerning the re-watering of the C&O Canal. The design portion of the project was initially approved in 2019, but was stalled by the Covid pandemic. The city will provide in-kind and financial contributions not to exceed $210,000. US Senators Cardin and Van Hollen have already earmarked $390,000 for the project. The public meeting begins at 6:15pm at City Hall.
