Stone Pier Floats Winter Preparation
Soon the ³J² Float will be the first float to be hauled out since it takes the worst beating when Northwest winds get going. The Harbormaster will be notifying those who regularly tie up at this float.
Our Harbormaster Claire Ross is requesting further input from the waterfront community and those who tie up at the remaining floats concerning their respective seasonal float use. On Thursday, November 1st, the Coastal Water Commission will be taking up this subject and all Stone Pier float users should attend this meeting to express their views and opinions. The meeting will be held at 7 pm in the Firehouse Conference Room. We hope that through this meeting and public notice a more sensible approach and sequence can be developed, as well as enhance access for seasonal users. However, we also need to achieve the Town¹s goals of preserving public safety and minimizing damage to our floats from a financial perspective.
