Edgartown selectmen this week directed town highway superintendant Stuart Fuller to shave down a berm on Curtis Lane that has proved problematic for drivers. The Massachusetts highway department and the department of transportation have already approved the work. The berm was installed to prevent water runoff onto Curtis Lane, but at Monday’s selectmen’s meeting Curtis Lane resident Sylvia Thomas said that she was afraid of hitting the undercarriage of her car every time she passed over it.

“It’s dangerous,” she said. “I’ve lived there for many years and Curtis Lane has never presented a problem like that. Something has got to be done with it before someone gets hurt.”

Selectmen also accepted letters of recognition from police chief Tony Bettencourt for police officers Chris Dolby and Jonathan Searle to recognize their “exceptional service” during recent investigative work. Also on Monday selectmen appointed Bruce McIntosh and Gary Look to the marine advisory committee, and appointed Ann Heron as an alternate to the historic district committee.
