Babe's beach building

A beachgoer passes by the pipe being used to add sand to a beach in Galveston on Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2019. Crews are preparing to begin a major project that will open about eight new blocks of sand to tourists and residents.


A new Texas law that directs some hotel occupancy taxes to beach-building projects might stabilize what has long been an unpredictable funding source, state and island officials said.

Will their be a project directed to restoring the beach at High Island at SH 124 and SH 87?
