Petitions and Communications:
on several issues—Dick Giggey thought that we should have a policy for tax
acquired property. There
discussions on speed limits and having the sheriff’s Department to enforce
these regulations. John Crosby
brought out the fact that young adults are harassing the Police Officers.
Ferry—with the additional traffic this year maybe we need to have
another boat or additional runs like early morning.
The Manager said that one public works employee was laid off to allow an
additional ferry employee. Several
members mentioned that we hadn’t budgeted for these increased runs (for
additional staff and increased operating costs).
It was decided that the “rules of shuttling “ should be maintained
and that the captains enforce the policy of “chains up”.
No motion was made.
Oleg Svetlichny made the motion to move the following operating procedure
shall be adopted that the members of the Town of Frye Island Executive Committee
participate directly in each Board of Selectmen meeting allowing them to make
