Ung allocated funding for the venture during the Town Council’s modern budget negotiations, on which Mayor Adams and the Council reached a offer June 10.

“The up coming move includes the SCA scoping the undertaking and we will be ready to offer additional data when that is full, someday early next 12 months,” he wrote in an e-mail to the Chronicle.
