Salisbury Beach trust fund unwrapped


Expenditures to date have included about $188,000 to pay for a sand restoration project when the Army Corps of Engineers dredged the mouth of the Merrimack River, a little over $16,000 for Salisbury Beach pile removal, along with $4,500 for on-site waste water system evaluation in the campground.

Whether more money can be amassed is questionable. The surcharge from $2 to $3 is in the House version of the state budget, but not the Senate version. A conference committee will decide on the final budget.

“Rep. Costello and I are advocating for these to be included,” state Sen. Kathleen O’Connor Ives said. “In my opinion the replacement of sand on Salisbury Beach is a way to strengthen the state’s tourism to benefit the whole state, because this is a very popular beach.”
