According to the Arbroath Herald, Angus Council is expected to make a decision next week on dredging Arbroath harbour.
The infrastructures services executive sub-committee will meet on Monday to discuss the silt build up in the harbour which can block the launch of the RNLIB Inchcape at low spring tide.
Harbour issues are very close to the heart of Independent councillor Bob Spink.
He said: “We used to get Moray Council’s ‘Shearwater’ to dredge the harbour for the last six years, but unfortunately that boat’s a bit knackered.
“I understand they’re currently building another one but it could be years before that comes to fruition.”
