      Sinatra Park:
      I visited the site on June 25 where I saw the collapsed 
      southern seawall.
       
      Work had to stop for safety reasons as well as the scope
      of the project changing.
      The project is no longer
      pile restoration. At this
      time I do not know a date
      of completion.
       
      The biggest obstacle in
      terms of time has been permitting from the DEP.
      I am hopeful that we can
      obtain an amended permit rather than having to go through the entire process again.
       
      The City must go out to bid again due to the drastic
      change in the scope of
      the project.
