Salisbury beach sand project restored to state budget


Money set aside for the replenishment of Salisbury Beach State Reservation was restored to the state budget late last month after being vetoed by Governor Deval Patrick. Both branches of the Legislature voted to override the veto, restoring $300,000 that will be used to replenish sand that was washed away by late-winter storms. “Salisbury Beach is one of the most important natural resources in the state and a critical economic driver for the entire region,” said Representative Michael Costello, a Newburyport Democrat, in an announcement made with state Senator Kathleen O’Connor Ives, who is also a Democrat from Newburyport. “Spending money to address the serious erosion that occurred there was clearly a top priority for me.”
