Beach Patrol Headquarters Returned to Foundation

City enlists crane service to reposition the structure after Irene.

It was put back in its place on Oct. 7.

That's what City of Long Beach workers did with the Beach Patrol Headquarters on after the forces of Hurricane Irene knocked the structure from its foundation and into the boardwalk at National Boulevard beach in late August.

The Long Beach Herald reports that the city hired the help of Bay Crane Service Inc. to reposition the structure.

This time, it cost $200,000 for a contractor to handle the job. Last time, 17 years ago, the city did it themselves at no cost.

ah-hem. Where are the pictures that show the cranes doing the actual work? Google "Moving Lifeguard HQ in lB back to postion", and see what you get. This took them less than an hour to accomplish. Why are we are the hook for the previous 2 rentals that failed to move it? Any answers Charles.......

Why couldnt they get a dozen volunteer firemen and beefy lifeguards to pick the damn thing up and move it for a few kegs of beer?
