A proposal to extend the Church Street dock and an update on the Bristol Animal Shelter construction project highlight tonight's Bristol Town Council meeting.
The council is expected to consider an appropriation for up to $50,000 for applications and necessary paperwork with the state Coastal Resources Management Council in order to expand the Church Street Dock, according to the agenda listed on the Town Council website.
The council will also hear an update on the animal shelter project, which may be subject to a delay. The Capital Projects Committee is scheduled to meet at 3:30 p.m. today to consider whether to send the proejct — which has reportedly been beset with design problems — out to re-bid, which could delay it for months. The council is also expected to acknowledge Bristol Animal Shelter's 'Best of Rhode Island' award from the readers of RI Monthly magazine.
The council is also expected to consider several traffic concerns and consider several license requests. For a full look at the meeting, check out the attached agenda.
