After much delay, West Tisbury selectmen voted Wednesday to approve an extension of the outdoor farmers’ market through the end of October.

The proposal by the market managers calls for the extension of the market for three additional weekends in October at its new location on the grounds of Agricultural Society, with adapted hours from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m..

The proposal was first brought before the selectmen by market co-manager Collins Heavener two weeks ago and received approval from the town zoning board of appeals, conservation commission and the Vineyard Conservation Society earlier in the month.

At a meeting last week, the selectmen opted to delay their vote an additional week, heeding a request from selectman Kent Healy who felt he needed more time to study the proposal. At that meeting, selectmen Skipper Manter also raised questions about general activity on the Ag Society’s property under its conservation restriction.

On Wednesday, the selectmen brought the proposal to a final decision, voting unanimously in support of the measure with a caveat proposed by Mr. Manter to address details of the Ag. Society’s conservation restriction with town counsel Ron Rappaport in a separate public meeting later in the fall season.

“We’ll allow this to continue and then look at the big picture,” said Mr. Manter.

In other business Wednesday, the selectmen approved a final plan to commence phase three of the town hall’s reopening.

Under the plan, all staff members will return to work in person except those with a documented medical condition and those who serve as caretakers for someone in a high-risk category, both of whom may qualify for a waiver. Employees will work with the selectmen and board of health to receive a waiver, said town administrator Jennifer Rand.

After voting to approve a draft of the plan last week, the selectmen heard updates from Ms. Rand, who amended the plan after meeting with town hall staff members earlier on Wednesday. Amendments to the plan include instituting a handful of new building safety measures and providing a quick link to the Massachusetts government web page on safety procedures, Ms. Rand said.

On the whole, staff members were supportive of the re-opening plan, but not unanimously, Ms. Rand said. Some who would not qualify for waivers remain uncomfortable with returning to the building at full staff capacity, she said.

Ms. Rand suggested the selectmen vote to enforce the plan for all employees without a waiver, citing the plan’s approval from the board of health as well as a personnel bylaw that generally prohibits town hall employees from working at home.

“If not now, when?,” Ms. Rand said. “I do think we should move forward and pass this and make it clear to those staff that are still uncomfortable that we will continue to evolve . . . It’s time that we move forward and get people back to our desks and make ourselves a little more available to the public even if the public can’t get in here.”

Mr. Manter voiced concern over mandating in person work across the board, questioning whether individual department heads, rather than the selectmen, should decide on granting waivers.

But Mr. Healy pushed back. “It is the responsibility of the town to provide a safe working place and we should rely on our board of health agent to ensure that there are safe working conditions. If he says there are, then I say the town has fulfilled their responsibility,” said Mr. Healy.

Selectman Cynthia Mitchell echoed Mr. Healy, proposing that the selectmen institute the plan for all and address individual issues on a case-by-case basis. “We can stay flexible,” she said.

Closing out the discussion, the selectmen voted unanimously in favor of the phase three plan, effective Monday, Sept. 21.
