More sand, please! The nor'easter on December 10 removed six feet of shoreline from downtown Montauk, which means that the Army Corps of Engineers now need 31,000 cubic yards more in its shoreline stabilization project. And the need to resurvey the beach means that the project will now be done in two phases: one to start soon and end before Memorial Day and another in the autumn, which will finish in early 2016. Originally all the work was supposed to be done before Memorial Day. One issue: according to the East Hampton Press, one more coastal property owner must sign off on an easement before the work can start. The owner has until February 11. Town Supervisor Larry Cantwell is working with the property owner to get the project moving.
