Proposed bill would let voters approve new Machias dike

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

Before a replacement can be chosen for the Machias dike, 10 state and federal agencies must sign off on its design. Now, Rep. Will Tuell (R-E. Machias) would like to add one more approval to the list — that of Machias and Marshfield voters.

“This would give everybody an opportunity to have their voices heard,” said Tuell, crediting local historian Valdine Atwood with the idea. “She mentioned it on one of my Facebook posts about the dike.”
