ST. JOSEPH — The city of St. Joseph will reimburse the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for additional dredging that will result in nearly 10,000 extra cubic yards of sand and sediment to be placed along the lake shoreline.

In a special meeting held by Zoom on Sunday, the City Commission voted to enter into an agreement that calls for an estimated additional 9,431 cubic yards of dredge waste to be placed on the shoreline south of Park Street, for a total of 46,031 cubic yards. The cost to the city of $66,375 will be paid from the Capital Improvement Fund.
