VIRGINIA BEACH, Va - On Tuesday night, the Virginia Beach City Council voted to transfer more than $1 million in funds to help fight erosion at Chic's Beach.

Members voted to move $1,058,079 from "Beach Replenishment II" to "Chesapeake Beach Restoration." The ordinance passed 10-0 with one no vote.

Nearly two years ago, a judge ruled that the the city has the right to maintain and protect the beach. The area extends about one mile along the Chesapeake Bay from Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story east to Joyce Avenue.  In order to maintain and protect the area, funding is needed.
