Port Chester's trustees will attend a special meeting tonight to discuss the waterfront's deteriorating bulkhead -- a project that could cost the village millions.
The retaining wall was built by developer G&S Investors as part of the deal that brought the $100 million waterfront complex to Port Chester.
Village officials say tracking the original documents has been a nightmarish task -- two former village officials key to the original construction deal are deceased, most of the records are hard copies in dusty files, and retrieving the originals from the development company hasn't been easy.
Earlier this year, Trustee Daniel Brakewood characterized the problem as as "the Leaning Tower of Pisa" and wondered how much time was left to fix the bulkhead before it falls apart. Parts of the waterfront promenade have been closed due to the damage and potential safety hazards.
But the bulkhead is sagging, and coming up with a solution is one of the biggest priorities for Port Chester's new board.
