An effort to revise and update Beals’ 2004 Harbor & Coastal Waters Ordinance has been underway for over a year, when Paula McCormack was voted onto the board of selectmen in March 2020. Working with the town’s attorney to make adjustments that accounted for changes in state statute (M.R.S. 30-A), she presented a revision to the town’s harbor committee May 12. Following the committee’s approval, she scheduled a public hearing, followed by an (approving) vote last week (June 29).
