Longboat Key residents can examine three different sand samples under consideration for the town's next renourishment project at the town's regular workshop.
The workshop will be at 2 p.m., Thursday, March 25, at Town Hall, 501 Bay Isles Road.
Town Manager Bruce St. Denis wants commissioners to make a decision about the type of sand the town should use for its 2011-12 beach renourishment project.
Three samples of sand under consideration will be available for viewing and inspection by both the Town Commission and the public starting today.
For more information about the sand choices, including the potential cost for taxpayers, pick up a copy of the March 25 edition of The Longboat Observer.
