Jan. 19, 1938 - Shoal removal pressing need: Removal of the shoal from the mouth of East river, and dredging of a triangular turning basin, would be a great aid to navigation into this port, Lieutenant Colonel W.H. Holcombe, district engineer for the war department, was told at a hearing in the in the council chamber yesterday afternoon. The project would not require any additional land, would involve about 225,000 cubic yards of dredging, and would cost about $90,000, according to Ray Heffernan, retained by the Green Bay Harbor commission to make a survey of the proposed project.

Mayor John S. Farrell pointed out that the city would benefit from such an improvement, both directly and indirectly. While he explained that he was not empowered to bind the administration, he expressed the believed that the city probably would approve an appropriation for 15 percent of the cost.
