Sandwich Receives Money for Repairs to Town Boat Ramp


BOSTON – The Baker-Polito Administration has awarded nearly $7,000 to the Town of Sandwich to repair their heavily used boat ramp and to install lighting at the same ramp to improve safety at that location during low light conditions.

“For many, the marina’s boat ramp is the gateway to the canal and Cape Cod Bay; they rely on it being in tip-top shape to access the marina for business and pleasure,” said State Representative Randy Hunt.

“I’d like to thank the Division of Marine Fisheries for their continued assistance in maintaining and improving this important fixture of the Sandwich Marina.”

The funds are part of $17,700 in grants to saltwater fishing access projects.

The grants were awarded through the Department of Fish and Game’s Division of Marine Fisheries Public Access Small Grant Program, which uses revenue from the sale of recreational saltwater fishing permits to improve angler opportunity in Massachusetts’ marine waters.
