Mayor Hosti and Councilperson Wylly reported on recent beach erosion meetings; Mayor Hosti stated that Colonel Christman, Districti.p, Engineer for the Corps of Engineers, has personally inspected the beach recently and plans to report that the wall needs bracing; we are hoping that Corps funds can be used. The Mayor also reported that he has been in touch with Dr. Vernon J. Henry, Chairman of the Scientific Task Force, who visited and took pictures of the beach . In view of the Corps' con- cern for the wall, it was decided to rope off the eastern portion of the South End Parking Lot, not allowing people to park in the eastern-most spaces, but keeping the remainder of the parking lot open at least through this week end because of the Tybee Jubilee.

The following costs are predicted at this time: Water Tank Details $1,900.00 Revision of Maps, etc 900.00 Engineering Justification of Need600.00 The total expected expenditure to prepare for the next step in the grant process will thus be approximately $3,400.00.

Councilperson Orsini so moved, Councilperson Jackson seconded and the motion passed unanimously.
