With an abundance of seaweed on town beaches this season, Scituate officials on Tuesday voted a new seaweed policy into effect. According to selectmen, officials will look at the sections of public beaches with lifeguards every Wednesday and Thursday from the third week in June until Labor Day. The Recreation Department and Board of Health will jointly decide if the seaweed needs to be removed. The seaweed will be raked up and disposed of at a landfill in Bourne, selectmen said. The effort will also ensure that there is enough seaweed on the beach for animal feeding and habitat needs. Not only is the regulation for town workers, but “people on private beaches who want to do their own cleanup work will know the right steps to follow,” Selectman Tony Vegnani said.
