Final Steps Completed for Beginning Beach Renourishment

Published on December 21, 2007 by Sherri Dodsworth under Beach Renourishment, Cape San Blas, Port St. Joe

It’s a Christmas miracle – we finally have all our permitting in hand for beach renourishment. Received the following update from the Beach Renourishment committee this evening:

Yesterday we received our final approved permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. As a result, County Administrator Don Butler was able to execute the contract with Manson Construction Company, which has been mailed out to them today. Without the hard work, dedication and support of all of you, the Board of County Commissioners, the members of the SJPBAC, the TDC and County Staff, MRD Associates, FDEP, USACE, USFW, Manson Construction and many others, we could not have gotten to this point!

We will have more information on the actual start date for dredging, etc., following a meeting with the contractor which will take place after the first of the year. Once the project actually gets underway, we will have weekly updates and do everything we can to get as much information out to you as possible as construction proceeds up the Cape.
