Thank You


I am very grateful that the town took the proper procedures to rake our beach. Along with the piles of dead, wet algae, the stench was eliminated.

Our family as well as many visitors are now able to enjoy our beautiful beach. Please know that I am not asking for a pristine beach or that the town rake at the slightest deposit of dead algae.

However, when we have piles of wet dead algae mixed with other, not natural, debris and breeding bacteria and reeking of a very undesirable stench, it is certainly time to take action.
