Masset harbor authority one step closer

  • Feb. 12, 2014 3:00 p.m.

After three months without, Masset took one step closer to securing a new harbour authority on Jan. 30 by hosting a well-attended public meeting with DFO’s Small Craft Harbours branch. “There was good attendance and it was a good starting point, but we have more to do,” said Brian Bussiere of Masset, who is coordinating future meetings. Mr. Bussiere has gathered the contact information of nearly 25 people who are interested in the future of the harbour. “We need seven people for the Harbour Authority. But, we also need people who want to be members of the association. Once we have seven people, they can start making bylaws for the wharf,” he said. Small Craft Harbours will continue its involvement with the Masset harbor, as a partner with the local harbour authority. “They’ll take care of the big stuff like pilings and decking and we’ll do the day to day things like pay the hydro bill, paint and other such things,” said Mr. Bussiere. As for the future of the harbour and his hopes, Brian said, “keep it cleaned up; keep it expanding; keep it accessible to everyone who wants to use it; and keep it accessible for tourism and tourists, too.” Within the next two weeks, there will be another public meeting held for all those interested in the future of the harbour and to determine who will be the seven authority members. Mr. Bussiere can be contacted regarding the meeting date and time, as well as wharf rates at 626-5286.
