May 8, 2024 - Update
(Shared during Regular City Council Meeting)
Two options regarding reuse of the existing piles from the Yacht Club Pier, which was severely damaged during Hurricane Ian, were presented to the Council. After the presentation, the majority of the Council agreed that removing the existing piles to allow the new pier to be raised was the best option. The council also discussed the possibility of a temporary, shorter pier for the community.
