LONGBOAT KEY, Fla. – The City of Longboat Key will take up the issue of maintaining their beaches at a commission meeting Monday.

Town Manager Dave Bullock will give the commission a list of projects necessary to protect Longboat Key’s beaches. He will also discuss cost to complete the projects. Estimates are in the $20-$25 million range.

The projects are expected to protect shorelines and keep the beach healthy and combat erosion over an eight year period.

Sand will be dredged from Longboat Pass and pumped onto beaches.

The meeting started at 10am at Town Hall on Bay Isles Road.

My name is Scott.
