This message sent to the Mirror by a concerned citizen. Apparently, dunes were chopped off and dispersed on the beach. Below is the complaint:
I have three major questions. 1.)Without board approval, the sand with its’ grasses in the dunes was moved to our beach and now our beach is littered with hard grass shreds, seeds; a total mishandling of our funds. It is now misery to walk our beach barefoot. How much will it cost to return the Cape Charles beach sand to the smooth soft sand before Covid? What have they done to our most profitable resource?
2.) We also need more trash cans on the beach because after this past Saturday the trash is all over the base of trash cans blowing all over. Who is cleaning our beach? I do not see the town workers early a.m. changing trash as in previous years. What happened to these employees? Were they laid off?
3.) The bayfront Public bathrooms and showers are in an abandoned state. The shower floor has been laid with wood, but how about the showers themselves? Neither work. Please, take a walk down to our beach, look at the showers, and please, walk the beach, sift the sand with your fingers.
