Marsh Harbour Town Committee

In a very brief meeting on September 12, members of the Marsh Harbour Town Committee met and discussed dock repairs and elected a new member to represent the committee at Central Abaco District Council meetings.

Noting that it had been discussed at a meeting last year, Committee Chairman Yvonne Key suggested the committee proceed with awarding a contract for repairs to the Crossing’s public dock. A proposal of $3,600 for six steps was accepted in principal.

She said last year that there was an agreement between Marsh Harbour Town Committee and the Hope Town District Council (HTDC) that they would split the repairs as people from the cays were the ones primarily using the dock. However, after the last conversation the HTDC said they cannot afford to do it.

She proposed that the Committee proceed without the HTDC and do just three of the steps for $1,800 because it needs to be done.

Because a member of the Committee has been absent for more than three meetings, a motion was made to have the committee member replaced. The motion was seconded and carried. According to rules and procedures if a member misses three meeting without an accepted excuse that member may be removed.
