Dear editor:

After reading about the elaborate and costly plan (FEMA money) to improve the southern end of Fulton Beach Road, I was taken back that there was no mention of any money to be spent on the north end where maintenance is a big issue.

In one section, saltwater is over the road for weeks at a time when we have high tides and that has been a lot of days recently.

With the mean tide levels up considerably over the past 50 years, all of this road will continue to be a bigger problem in coming years.  How about allocating some FEMA dollars just to make the north area more serviceable by elevating the area that floods, clean out ditches, and bring out material to handle the eroded areas.  The entire road needs resurfacing but that may be asking too much!
