Manalapan: Town, county meet on beach issues

    Dan Bates, Palm Beach County’s environment resource management director, had mixed news during a recent meeting with Manalapan’s task force on beach issues.

    The good news was that the contours of Manalapan’s coastline help its beaches collect and retain sand. The bad news is that because the town’s beachfront is nearly all privately owned, there won’t be any federal or state money for repairs. However, Town Manager Linda Stumpf said the beach at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa may be an exception because it has public use and collects tourism taxes. 

    The town’s task force is looking into getting federal or state money to help clear away some of the underwater debris behind the resort.
