It is the belief of the Harbor Ordinance Committee that the current one page ordinance does not cover all the needed issues dealing with our harbors and docks.
  The audience is reminded that if provisions for enforcement are not in writing, such as the ordinance, there are no legal grounds to enforce. There is estimated to be 100 to 150 moorings in Islesford Harbor now, with more and more moorings being added every year. The Town really does not possess an accurate measure of number or locations of existing moorings at this time. Currently, Town of Cranberry Isles Harbormasters are appointed annually by the Board of Selectmen, and receive an annual stipend check in the amount of $500.00 each.
Adjournment:  12:37 P.M.
