Harbormaster is checking with one more company regarding new floats. Treasurer feels that we can pay for what floats we need from the Town Dock account. Ford has sent a copy of the Shoreland Zoning changes to DEP to check for any obvious problems. Has had a report from a taxpayer that Frost Pond has risen 8 feet in the past 10 years. Possible beaver problem?
