Click on the image for a better view. This was this morning, right before the Beach Alliance meeting and at high tide. Speaking of Beach Alliance meeting, finally people are talking about Newburyport!
Of course, it's mostly about how most of the houses in the eroded area (of Newburyport) are not in a state of emergency. Our Ward 1 councillor, Allison Heartquist, questioned the criteria for "emergency" and the use of the word "time" to do stuff. She was kicking some butt (most politely, too); it was pretty cool.
"We don't have time; we don't know what time is; or how to define time ... Why can't we get emergency certification for these homeowners?"
The city got a $75,000 partnership grant from DCR for beach issues. That means we have to come up with $25,000.
