OLD BUSINESS

Membership

Brad reported that Mr. Tom Brown would not be able to accept his appointment as a member as he has a conflict with meetings scheduled for Tuesdays. He’d like to be considered again as he would like to be involved.

Norman reported that he’d had a phone call from Dave Roberts who wanted be considered for appointment. Norman was asked to invite Dave to a meeting and present his credentials to the Selectmen.


Plaque

Charlie is to get Norman’s name added to the plaque

Dock Standards
Steve reported that he, Bob and Brad met to hash out a final rendition of dock standards. A copy was provided to all and Brad’s to send a copy to any members not in attendance.
Any action was tabled and all members are to review the rendition with the intent that it would be ratified by the membership.

Patrol Boat

Mike Mackey reported that he was working on replacement windows and was close to finished with the job. He’ll return the boat to the Cross Lane Fire House and remove what is left of the shrink wrap. Steve Ross is to call Mr. Montanaro (sp?) and arrange for the annual waxing and polishing. Steve said that he’d also mentioned to the Selectmen that most of the commission members would be willing to go out on patrol in the boat should the Selectmen find Constables also willing. As to whether a fresh coat of bottom paint is necessary, Steve and Mike will decide that issue.

Steve said he’d do an additional training session aboard the boat as soon as practical.
Dinghy Dock

Mike Mackey said that the usual wash of flotsam and jetsam had accumulated over the winter. Steve said that he’d speak with the town’s public works department about hauling it away and whatever has also gathered at Pilgrim’s Landing.

Harbor Improvements

Steve said that he has the sign for the Town Landing site and needs to arrange for it to be put up. He also said that Public Works was planning to do the renovation work in the next 30 days or so. Dave Zita said that he and Mike Moran were planning to visit other possible sites and were waiting for tidal lows. Brad is to get signs for Pilgrims Landing parking.

Charlie is to follow up with the Selectmen on the status of the site at the end of Academy Lane and title thereto.


NEW BUSINESS


Updating of the Harbor Management Plan

There was no discussion.

Mooring Permits

Brad reported that the cost of stickers (to indicate that a mooring in Old Lyme waters had been permitted) would be around $500.  After discussion it was moved, seconded and approved that the commission allow up to $500 for the purchase of stickers.

Attendance at Commission on Long Island Sound

Judi was absent so there was no report on the activities of that group. Charlie is to talk with her about her attendance there.

Pump Out Boat   

There are pennants available from the Department of Environmental Protection which a boat owner can “fly” from his boat should he want the pump out service. In that way he can alert the pump out boat that it is OK for it to take care of pumping even if the owner is absent. All are encouraged to get this information out to the community and Steve said that he’d pick up a supply of pennants and make them available at Town Hall.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:47 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Brad Ficken, as Clerk
