After years of delays, progress being made on boat docks

July 23, 2014

The eyesore in the water by Hewlett Park across from the Granbury Conference Center should soon be a thing of the past.

Well over four years ago, poles were placed in the water in preparation for the construction of a public boat dock and fishing pier. The dock never materialized due to a disagreement between the city and Jay Mills construction company in Stephenville about the materials that were to be used.

The disagreement turned into a legal dispute that rocked on for several years.

In December 2012, a compromise and settlement agreement was reached, but even then the problems continued.

It was determined in August 2013 that the construction company had failed to meet the agreed-upon deadline.

The project is now moving forward, with construction being handled by Litchfield & Sons of Tolar.

Workers were at the site late last week, according to Public Works Director Alva Cox.
