Pier Corp. Popularity
A total of eight people have applied for two spots on the Provincetown Public Pier Corp. board. The select board will interview the last five on Monday, March 22, and they could make appointments that night.
The management of MacMillan Pier, handled by the Pier Corp., is a hot topic after two recent developments. The current Pier Corp. dramatically raised dock fees and two members, Ginny Binder and Carlos Verde, were forced to resign because of term limits.
New applicants include Beau Gribbin, a long-time commercial fishing captain and boat owner, who operates out of Provincetown. He lives in North Truro, but Pier Corp. members don’t have to be Provincetown residents. Gribbin is a member of the Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen’s Alliance, according to his application.
Max Cliggott-Perlt of Provincetown has been a member of the Local Comprehensive Planning Committee since its inception, he wrote on his application.
Robert Davis of Provincetown is a long-time investor, mostly in hotels and resorts. He wrote that he sees an economic opportunity to expand recreational sailing in the harbor, which is “underutilized in terms of moorings and slips.”
Clinton Kershaw of Truro says in his application he is well-versed in budget and financial management but will have a learning curve to get up to speed on municipal financing.
David Colton of Provincetown is a general municipal management consultant with the Edward J. Collins Center for Public Management and a former town administrator in Easton and Milton, as well as former commissioner and director of public works in Quincy and Milton.
The select board interviewed four other candidates on March 8: Eastham lobsterman David Young, Mass. Maritime Academy student Caitlin Townsend of Truro, and Barbara Dyett, who lives in New Jersey and Provincetown. The fourth, Laura Ludwig, who serves on the harbor committee, withdrew her application. She said it conflicted with her work for the Center for Coastal Studies, a marine biology nonprofit. —K.C.
