City Council Approves Additional Funding from Type B Board to Fully Fund Cole Park Pier

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – At today’s regularly scheduled City Council meeting, Mayor Paulette Guajardo and the City Council approved an Ordinance to increase the appropriation of Type B funding for the Cole Park Pier from the unreserved fund balance of the Type B Sales Tax Fund. The appropriation of additional funds from the Type B Corporation will provide full funding for the reconstruction of Cole Park Pier with significantly improved public amenities.

On December 22, 2020, a construction contract was awarded to JM Davidson Ltd. for Cole Park Pier improvements, located in District Council 2, with funding from the Type B Sales Tax Fund, the Community Enrichment Fund, and from the General Fund unreserved fund balance.

On January 11, 2021, the Type B Corporation approved additional funding to increase Type B’s contribution to this project. With the additional contribution from Type B Corporation the project will be built as designed.

The old Cole Park Pier is set for demolition next month and will take about six weeks. For the latest on the Cole Park Pier project, residents can visit www.cctexas.com/coleparkpier
