Corps seeking proposals for management of Narrows Marina, beginning 2013

   The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is seeking applications for the management of the Narrows Marina on Barren River Lake. The Corps is seeking proposals that would include the operation and improvements to the marina.
   It was closed in April for several weeks due to electrical issues. There have also been concerns about the Narrows boat ramps.
   The Narrows Marina operations’ contract with Barren River Waterfront Development expires Dec. 31, 2012. The new management contract would begin Jan. 1, 2013.
   The marina, open since 1991, has 120 boat slips and a bait shop. The Narrows Campground is operated by the Corps.
   Proposals for managment of the marina are due June 6. The new contract will be for 20 years. 
   For more information or to receive a proposal packet, contact Elaine Waller at 502-315-6973 or Patty Smith at 502-315-7017.
