CRYSTAL BEACH — Officials with the Bolivar Peninsula Chamber of Commerce denied media reports that oil from the Galveston Bay spill had reached their shores.

“There is no oil on the Bolivar Peninsula beaches and none is expected from the recent oil spill in Texas City, Texas,”  a statement from the chamber read.

The statement added that normal businesses activities are underway on the peninsula. 

 “We invite you all to come and visit our peninsula and enjoy the good food and the fine beaches,“ said Mac McDonald, chamber president.
