20-Year Wait List
The select board, harbormaster, and town natural resources staff are looking to revise the marina dockage agreement.
The wait list for docks at Rock Harbor date back to 1999, according to Art Autorino of the select board. At Great Pond, the list goes back to 2016.
The board took up the issue after a resident asked about taking ownership of a slip that had belonged to a deceased parent. Currently, death of the boat owner is grounds for termination of the slip. It does not give preference to commercial boat owners.
No final decisions were made at Monday’s select board meeting. Harbormaster Scott Richards agreed to return once he had come up with a plan to improve the agreement. —Cam Blair
