Army Corps of Engineers orders downtown barge be removed

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has revoked the permit for B. Allen Casey's barge on the North Shore across from the Tennessee Aquarium.

In a letter to Mayor Andy Berke, Lt. Col., John Hudson said the Corps has ordered Casey to remove the barge structure, mooring poles and cables and associated barge access walkways from its site on the Tennessee River in downtown Chattanooga. The Corps is giving Casey 60 days to remove the barge, which Casey bought and brought to Chattanooga nearly five years ago hoping to develop a floating restaurant off of Manufacturers Road.

Casey filed for personal bankruptcy earlier this month.
