You'll soon be able to set sail on the Big Elk River.
A kayak launch is coming to Elkton.
According to Michelle Henson, Administration Office Secretary for the Town of Elkton, delivery of the kayak launch is expected within a few weeks. The launch will be installed to allow for a launch into the Big Elk River.
The kayak dock features a 36 inch by eight foot slip. There will be floats on either side of the dock. The dock was purchased for $2,411 from Accu Dock. It will be installed by crewmen from the town's Department of Public Works.
Henson said that buying the launching dock was the mayor's idea.
Funds came from the general fund of the town budget.
Once a firm date has been established, members of a local kayak club will be invited to turn out to officially give the new launch a work out.
