The press loves misery

The press loves misery. Bet you can't find a story about thousands of boaters having a fun, safe day on the water.

Yes, the deliberative session is more restricted than traditional Town Meeting. You cannot amend an article to change its intent, e.g. adding the word "not". At Traditional Town Meeting, you can...

I think the key word here is "season". Whether you put a boat in your yard or at your dock for the season, that can easily be translated to 6 months or more, not short term, not subject to Room and...

SB2 & spending

In the mid-90's when town started going to SB2, there was great fear from schools in particular, that budgets would be cut and the sky would fall. As it turned out, SB2 towns became the big...

Tyranny of the minority

At the same time, a small number of voters could walk out,and you no longer have a quorum so a particular issue can't be voted on.

There is a periodic purging of voters who have not voted, and new voters appear in growing numbers in most towns, not so much in northern cities. Regardless, if you have 3000 or 6000, 222 is a very...

I think in the Lodge thread we learned that they don't have a dock. Looks like some opportunities in Alton Bay, but not much time to get set up. Still have Shibley's and Pop's, right?

TiltonBB: Since the OP's Forum name is "Islandbum," I'd guess he keeps his boat in the water, not on a trailer. OTOH, buying a new boat may be about the sane price as a garage.

Marina?

Have your marina do all that stuff. If people pay you to take care of their car, why don't you pay somebody to take care of your boat? If you use valet storage, there really isn't much to do except...

bridge 1899

The bridge was built in 1899, long after Massachusetts and NH borders were determined, so no chance the postcard was correct.

Building?

There are some similar postcards on Weirsbeach.com, mostly more recent, but I don't see any that had that large building in them. Any idea what it is/was?

It's not just the slip. Many marinas offer showers, laundry, guest parking, space for a picnic table and grill,, etc. MVYC offers all that and leases are always for one year, so winter storage is...

short term rental

I think anything less than six months is short term and requires that you pay the 9% Room and Meals tax. Short term may not be allowed depending on zoning in any given town.
Long discussion here"...
