State Fines Edgartown for Unpermitted January Dredging (USA)

According to mvtimes.com, Edgartown selectmen agreed Monday to pay a fine to the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, for the unauthorized and unpermitted dredging in January.

“We hope, as far as the town is concerned, this is the end of it,town counsel Ron Rappaport told selectmen at their Monday meeting. “I recommend that you vote to accept this agreement. This is in the public interest. There was unlawful activity, and I think this is a fair resolution.”

Norman Rankow, a contractor building a house for the Barneses, resigned as chairman of the dredge advisory committee after admitting he authorized the dredging without the knowledge of selectmen or other members of the dredge committee, reports mvtimes.com.

The fine must be paid by the town, so selectmen will ask the financial advisory committee to authorize the funds from its emergency reserve fund.
