According to our news partner, wptv.com, Palm Beach County commissioners must decide whether to tap into emergency reserves to help restore local beaches that were battered by winds and waves from Hurricane Sandy.
Insiders say the county's beaches are in need of about $1 million worth of immediate repairs.
If approved, the money would go toward building up protective dunes and fixing structures that were damaged by surging water.
But the county is also waiting to get approved to get federal aid. Overall, county officials say area beaches suffered a total of $20 million worth of damage.
Commissioners will decide whether they will spend the million dollars at a meeting on Dec. 18.
