A city-owned barge in Huntington that's been leaking since early May will be removed soon.
Williams says the barge will be removed after 10 houseboats docked at the marina are moved.
The city then plans to remove the docks and marina infrastructure and redevelop the riverfront.
The cost of keeping the barge afloat since May is expected to top $100,000.
