COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.  Collier County leaders say Clam Pass is reopen, and doing better than ever. 

The controversial part of the beach reopened, closed and is now reopened again.  But, Pelican Bay leaders are still afraid that a tropical storm could wipe out all of the progress that's been made. 

At a meeting Wednesday, the County Board was asked to approve regular monitoring of the pass, which includes underwater surveying.
