DAUPHIN ISLAND, Ala. (AP) - A public meeting is set for next month to hear comments on a plan to pump sand onto the badly eroded East End Beach.

Dauphin Island Mayor Jeff Collier says the federal government’s Coastal Impact Assistance Program would fund a $5million project that would pump 300,000 cubic yards of sand onto the beach.

The state Department of Conservation and the Alabama Department of Environmental Management are hosting a meeting to gather public comment on the plan. The meeting is set for 6 p.m. on April 16 in the Shelby Center at Dauphin Island Sea Lab.

Collier says the town and its engineer can advertise for bids once the two state agencies sign off on the plan. He says he hopes to be working on the project by summer or fall.
