This revote is required for the completion of a contract with the York Construction Company for the reconstruction of 750 feet of the superstructure at the outer end of the eastern breakwater, in reinforced concrete. The estimated cost was $50,000. Last year $25,000 was expended ; accordingly the amount required to complete is $25,000.
asked for this year is for replanking and repainting the bridges. Many public works are in such condition that they call for continuous and extensive repairs, and it is sometimes difficult to tell exactly where to draw the line. Last year, as I have said, the amount of $12,800 was expended towards keeping this work in some sort of decent repair, and the amount asked for this year is absolutely necessary.
