County to settle $3M – 19M

Beachgoers were out in force at the Manatee Public Beach, Holmes Beach, on Sunday, Sept. 2, as Mother Nature produced a gorgeous Labor Day weekend. Manatee County could get as much as a $19 million settlement as a result of the BP oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010, to benefit tourism. The funding could finally replace the long-promised Manatee Public Beach pier. Islander Photo: Rick Catlin
