Early season boaters will be able to fuel up at the Edgartown harbor this summer, despite concerns before the selectmen this week that the fuel station would be closed.

Harbor master Charlie Blair said Monday that there would not be fuel for Memorial Day weekend because equipment at the Edgartown Marine harbor fuel dock, which is operated by R.M. Packer, needed to be upgraded before the dock opens.

Town administrator Pamela Dolby said Wednesday that fuel will be available, with repairs scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday and permits expected to be issued on Friday.
