The Oak Bluffs town hall renovation project has taken another step forward, after selectmen voted Tuesday to hire an owner’s project manager.


Selectmen expressed interest but caution in an Islandwide plastic bottle ban.

After an initiative to ban plastic bottles passed up-Island, students from Plastic Free MV are setting their sights on the three down-Island towns.
