Marine Resources Committee – July 2017

JULY 6, 2017
MEMBERS PRESENT: Dennis DeSilvey, Steve Blaisdel, Bill Sweetland
Absent: Eric Sass, Pete Douvarjo, Brian Tripp
Dwayne Ford and Colby Pert also present
The minutes of the previous meeting were reviewed and accepted.
Steve Blaisdel discussed the bank stabilization project. The current plan is for large stone to anchor the
base of the retaining wall with gradation to smaller stones. Trees will also be planter for bank
stabilization. We will need to get the co-owners of the town access, Jo and Ann Cutting to cosign on the
stabilization measures.
Discussion flowed on the SHIP grant process. DeSilvey will develop and submit a grant for future dock
improvements with the approval and oversight of the selectmen.
Discussion followed on the possible size of an expanded float for the end of the dock access. Dwayne
and Steve will discuss this with Billy Grant and report back to the committee.
A small bulletin board will be purchased for the dock to announce meetings and plans and mooring and
dinghy fees.
Discussion of the walkway followed and it is felt that the current walkway provides adequate access to
the dock.
The bush piles left over from the clearing of the parking area have been removed.
One tax payer expressed concerns that there was not a door on the dock so he could fuel his boat.
Committee agreed that this was not a priority when the dock was built.
Meeting adjourned at 1800
Next meeting will be August 3, 2017
Dennis DeSilvey, Chair and recording secretary.
