Galveston County commissioners finalize beach-related measures

Posted: Tuesday, March 15, 2016 11:45 pm

The county has finalized a couple of measures affecting beaches in time for the second weekend of spring break, when thousands of visitors could come to relax along the Gulf.

The commissioners court Tuesday approved the final amount of spending needed for utility-task vehicles outfitted with emergency lights, which will be used to increase law enforcement on Bolivar Peninsula beaches. Deputies could start increased patrolling by this weekend, Sheriff Henry Trochesset said. Officials want the deputies to act as tourism ambassadors and enforce rules, including a beach-sticker program requiring visitors to pay to park on the sand.
