The resignation of Machias Planning Board member David Barker, as well as the completion of Glenn Davis’ term, mean two out of the board’s five seats are vacant. The Machias Board of Selectmen discussed those vacancies at their meeting held Wednesday, Jan. 13.
“We really need a reliable third, it seems like every other meeting now we don’t have a quorum,” said secretary Cathy Lord.
The remaining three seats are occupied by chairman Bill Thompson, Ed Pellon, and Arthur McCurdy.
