KODIAK, Alaska (AP) - Kodiak officials say they are having a public-use crane installed downtown, something boaters have been asking about for years.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror reported (https://bit.ly/2xtEk7L ) Monday that the crane will be placed at Oscar’s Dock, possibly ready to go by the end of December.

Harbormaster Lon White says funding for the crane was approved in the city’s 2018 budget and design and engineering work is currently ongoing. Once design is completed, the city will solicit bids for the crane and support structure.

Anyone will be able to use the crane, although users will first have to complete an online class and orientation from harbor staff.

Billing will be in 15-minute increments at a rate of $25 for each 15 minutes.
