#mepolitics: Harpswell Town Meeting votes to overrule deputy moderator’s attempt to block amendment to beach easement article.

Now considering the actual amendment, which reads as follows:

My name is Michael Bourret and I reside at Oceanside, Bailey Island. As a resident of Harpswell, I hereby make a motion to amend Town Warrant Article 72 to delete conditions (a) through (c) so that Article 72 would read as follows:
“To see if the Town will vote to authorize the Board of Selectmen to accept delivery of a public access easement deed, in the same form as shown on Attachment A, and agreeing that the Town would be subject to the various affirmative obligations set forth therein.”
