PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - Reports of beach erosion and the need to better stabilize the city’s seawall prompted action from the Pascagoula City Council.

City engineer Jaci Turner says the beach was constructed by the Corps of Engineers about four years ago as a seawall for protection.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1fH1kvK ) portions of the beachfront area cannot be regularly maintained by Jackson County because of erosion or washing through the grassed and rock areas, closest to the water.

Turner says the Corps had asked for a letter to be released from the project, but county officials have been watching the area and noticed some places where there is some erosion.

The council passed a motion Tuesday to inform the Corps that additional work needs to be done to protect the area.
