Masset must hold referendum on marina

  • Jan. 16, 2004 3:00 p.m.

Enough Masset voters signed a counter-petition that the village will have to hold a referendum before borrowing money to build a small craft marina.
The counter-petition was filed by the deadline of Dec. 29, said village administrator Trevor Jarvis. He wasn’t sure how many signatures were on it, but it did have at least the required minimum of 42 names.
The village wants to build a 38-berth small craft marina for approximately $1-million, and says the project won’t go ahead unless it can cover at least 70-percent of the project cost through grants.
Because a valid counter-petition was filed, the village will have to hold a referendum before borrowing the other 30-percent.
Mr. Jarvis said council is now waiting to hear from the Softwood Lumber initiative about whether the grant proposal is approved.
