TRAVERSE CITY ? New owners at the Cherry Tree Inn on the Beach may have violated state and federal beach grooming requirements when they allegedly rolled bulldozers into East Bay to reshape the waterfront.

Officials from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will be on-site this week to investigate the earth-moving activities.

Said Greg Reisig, "We're hopeful DEQ and the Corps of Engineers will take swift and decisive actions on this obvious violation as there were no valid permits for this excavation of coastal wetlands along the shoreline of Grand Traverse Bay."
