The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting that the Grafton Ferry, recently thought to be closing after 8 years of operation, will be back in operation this spring.

The paper reports that the City Council of Grafton, Ill. has approved the city's purchase of the former Grafton Ferry landing in St. Charles County.

The mayor of Grafton, Tom Thompson, told the paper that "the exact purchase price remained to be determined but said he had no doubt that the purchase would occur."

Thompson also said that he is confident that the ferry will be back in operation by April.
