Rainforest Islands Ferry delays launch until spring of 2013


The Rainforest Islands Ferry was scheduled to launch in July 2012. Due to funding and design delays the launch of this service has been pushed back to the spring of 2013.

City of Coffman Cove representative, Heather Hedges said, “Originally the launch date was delayed because of funding.”

The City of Coffman Cove was attempting to receive funds from the United States Department of Agriculture.

“We were told that the USDA was no longer funding these projects,” Hedges said. “We tried other avenues for funds, but came up short.”

The USDA re-entered the arena with funds needed.
