The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has announced a $226,500 grant to the city of Toledo to build transient boat moorage at the proposed Marina District s public marina along the Maumee River.
The Boating Infrastructure Grant will pay for construction of 20 boat slips at the marina that will be reserved for use by boaters visiting the Marina District and the rest of downtown Toledo.
The proposed Glass City Municipal Marina will have a total of 100 boat slips, with the other 80 available for long-term rental.
