I just spoke with the Public Works Director from the Town of Longboat Key and the latest news is that Beach Nourishment is ahead of schedule and our beach is scheduled for June 15 – 20. HOWEVER…to further complicate things, we have a Black Skimmer bird nest just north of us and they are protected. Beach Nourishment cannot move forward until or unless the fledglings have left the nest. The beach is patrolled by the bird monitor every Thursday…I will get an update from the Public Works Director next Friday and pass along whatever information I get.
Thank you for understanding.
