Beach Erosion Exposed Potentially Dangerous Obstacles: Weather and ocean conditions of King Tides, high surf and erosion have been predominant since the passing of Hurricane Matthew and have unearthed and exposed these formally buried obstacles up and down the coast. Our public access crossovers and other historic structures in the sand have all been compromised by the exacerbated conditions. The public should be vigilant and careful around these newly exposed dangers while we work with the jurisdictional agencies to mitigate them. Remember a Town Building Permit and possibly DEP or other agency permits may be required for any significant repair or replacement of damaged structures. Any questions or concerns, please call Town Hall at 561-732-2635. (Posted 10/27/16)
