WAYNE — The effort to repair North Wayne Dam got another boost Tuesday. 

At a special town meeting, residents voted to spend $23,600 from an undesignated fund balance to pay for initial engineering work.

The final cost of repairs is unknown. The extent of the project will depend in part on the choice of the final design, associated costs such as the acquisition of permits, and whether the various leaks, cracks and worn areas of the dam are repaired all at once or independently of each other.

North Wayne Dam controls the flow of water from Lovejoy Pond into Pickerel Pond and Pocasset Lake.
