Some much needed and desired repair work on Algoma's south pier entryway will happen in the near future. That's because the City of Algoma will be receiving $50,000 in federal funds to repair erosion damage caused by high water levels on Lake Michigan. Algoma Mayor Wayne Schmidt says while repairs are needed on other sections of the south pier, the new funding will allow entryway renovation work to be done this year.
The repair work on the south pier entry will be done by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which owns the pier. No timeline for that work has yet been scheduled.
