New samples will be sent Tuesday, June 2 for hopeful opening by Friday, June 5th. The New Bathroom by the Big Pavilion, the Beach bathrooms, and the New Pavilion bathrooms will all be open, as they are city water.
The County Health Department has stated that they have no date from the Governor that he will allow beaches to open. When the date is set, we are to get on a list for the water to be sampled. Once the results are received, we may open according to state guidelines.
