The Davenport sea wall is in poor shape. There are holes. And in some areas, it's starting to crumble.

That's why city leaders want to start repairs before river levels come back up.

But one issue city leaders will tackle Wednesday night, February 20, 2013, is putting up a fence along the concrete wall.

The goal is to make the riverfront area in Davenport a little safer for patrons.

City leaders will be voting to authorize engineering to complete the design for the fence and to approve the cost for construction.

In September of 2012, city leaders took advantage of low levels on the Mississippi River to inspect the sea wall. Mayor Bill Gluba expressed his concerned

"With all the tourists and all the folks who come down to our riverfront, we want to make sure the wall is safe sound and secure."

That's the reason city leaders will consider spending $156,000 to get construction going and finish the project.

There's no word yet on when construction could begin.
