A trio of mainstay Menemsha businesses have been shuttered for close to two years with no official opening days in sight, prompting questions from selectmen this week.
Chilmark select board


The town of Chilmark was awarded a $205,937 grant on Monday from the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management’s Coastal Resilience Grant Program.
The Chilmark select board is mulling how to put up its portion of the funds for Menemsha commercial dock improvements, has questions on an affordable housing project, and approved a three-year contract for the fire chief.
Chilmark voted to install security cameras on the harbor master shack in Menemsha while it forms a committee to figure out the best way to install cameras on the west dock.
A 30-foot pole that went up in Menemsha to house security cameras on the west dock has been taken down while the town re-evaluates the project, selectman Warren Doty said.
Chilmark will press pause on installing security cameras in Menemsha after a group of residents registered their formal objection to a 30-foot pole that went up on the west dock to hold the cameras.
Preliminary work will get under way soon at the commercial fishing dock, after the Chilmark select board awarded a bid for a site assessment to Childs Engineering Tuesday afternoon.
