Formosa recently gave the city of Port Lavaca $200,000 to repair the Formosa Wetland Walkway at Lighthouse Beach Park.
Hurricane Harvey destroyed it.
Although the city has worked with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to repair the walkway, the $200,000 from Formosa will provide the matching funds needed to complete the $1.2 million project, City Manager Bill DiLibero wrote in a news release.
Already, the city has cleaned up and restored electricity to the campground, dredged the boat ramp and repaired the restrooms at Lighthouse Beach Park.
The city reopened the campground in January 2018 and it’s been full since then.
The city is also in the process of renourishing the beach Harvey eroded and looking for funding to replace the fishing pier the Category 4 hurricane destroyed, the city manager wrote.
