Masset harbour meeting delayed

  • Mar. 14, 2014 6:00 p.m.

The next Masset Harbour Authority meeting, loosely scheduled for the end of March, has been pushed back to mid-April, due to a delay from Small Craft Harbours (SCH).Small Craft Harbours, a branch of the DFO, will continue its involvement with the Masset harbour as a partner with the local harbour authority. Brian Bussiere of Masset, who volunteered to coordinate the meetings, said SCH can’t send a representative to the islands until mid-April, but they see the extra time as an opportunity. “Now, we’re just collecting info and getting ready for the meeting,” Mr. Bussiere said.The meeting will be open to all those interested in the future of the harbour and will determine who the acting members will be. “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,” Mr. Bussiere said earlier.He can be contacted regarding the meeting date and time, as well as wharf rates at 626-5286.
