Looking beyond the current flooding of the Mississippi River, aldermen Monday tentatively approved the sole bid Alton received to dredge silt from parts of Alton Marina.

The silt accumulated over the years, particularly during serious flooding in 2013, and perhaps more will be deposited this month.

The bid, from River Life and Co. Inc., is $275 per hour at for about 800 hours’ work in two areas to be dredged, with cost not to exceed $250,000.
