The seawall parking program has generated more than $83,000 for the city since it began last summer, according to reports made by the state’s General Land Office. Through Feb. 28, the city’s Beach User Fee Fund had a balance of $83,430. That money, according to the report, is what the city will use for capital projects.
GALVESTON — A recent Texas A&M University study found that out-of-county visitors to the park spent nearly $4 million in Galveston County last year. That money helped create nearly 58 full- and part-time jobs in the county, according to the study.
