Lieutenant Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Karyn Polito, joined Manchester-by-the-Sea Town Administrator Greg Federspiel, Harbormaster Bion Pike, and other local leaders last week to celebrate the re-opening of Morss Pier.

Vital repairs to the Pier and adjacent seawall were made possible in 2017 through a $327,000 Seaport Economic Council award that unlocked $100,000 in local funding.

“I’m honored to be here in Manchester-by-the-Sea to see this project come to fruition,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito, chair of the Seaport Economic Council“Our Administration looks forward to continuing to partner with leaders from Manchester-by-the-Sea and all coastal communities to promote growth, tackle climate change, and deliver vital repairs.” 

In addition to the Seaport Economic Council award, the Administration has also supported maritime industry in Manchester-by-the-Sea with a $500,000 MassWorks grant in 2017 to dredge Manchester Harbor.

The success of this award, which removed 24,676 cubic yards of harbor sediment for the working harbor that brings in $6 million worth of lobsters each year, led to the launch of a pilot program announced in Manchester-by-the-Sea that expanded this year into the Commonwealth’s first standalone annual dredging grant program.
