For the most part, the town enjoyed a great Fourth of July. The town harbor, however seemed less busy than in previous seasons. This email sent in by a slip holder echoes concerns many, including some members of town council, have for the town harbor:
We have a unique harbor, wonderful views, and a great seafood restaurant. Residents and visitors alike walk the docks to see the boats, enjoy the restaurant, and admire our bay.
But our town harbor is in need of maintenance. Dock boards are pulling up, slip guards are peeling away, and trash collects along the ramps.
Dockmaster and staff need to weed and maintain the flower boxes, remove trash from the ramps, keep docks and slips in good repair, and possibly remove floating trash from around the docks and launch lot.
This is a safety hazard for everyone, an eyesore, and a detraction if all is not in good repair and free from debris.
