Do the residents of Long Beach believe the breakwater issue is important?
Ryan ZumMallen, Managing Editor of the Long Beach Post (LB Post) kept the city informed with a constant stream of "Tweets" during the entire proceeding of the Long Beach City Council meeting last evening, 27 July 2009. City council members had already received hundreds of letters and messages from residents giving their opinions on the break water issue, and now the council was about to be presented with a detailed Long Beach Breakwater Reconnaissance Study offered by Russell H. Boudreau, principle coastal engineer for a local engineering firm Moffatt & Nichol.
From Ryan ZumMallen's Tweets (@lbpostdotcom):
