Silver Beach getting ready for the summer

ST. JOSEPH, Mich.-- It sure feels like beach season out there, and Monday crews started getting Silver Beach ready for the summer.

Bulldozers moved sand piles from the parking lot back to the beach.

It is something The Berrien County Parks Department does every year.

The lack of snow this winter made it a bigger job than usual.

Brian Bailey, with The Parks Department said, "We didn't have the snow cover to keep the sand down and we didn't have a lot of ice, so we do have a lot more buildup probably this year than normal."

The Parks Department said that the clean-up will take awhile, but they hope to have the sand back and the fence down by the middle of May.
