Pier Plan Passes

TRENTON — Residents at a special town meeting here Tuesday night voted 18-0 to accept a state grant, if it is awarded, to build a 200-foot floating pier next to the seaplane ramp at the Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport and to have the town pay 20 percent of the estimated cost of $80,000.

Selectman Fred Ehrlenbach said Tuesday that it is likely that no taxpayer money would need to be used because private interests have pledged enough to cover the town’s $16,000 share. The deadline for the town to apply for the Maine Department of Transportation grant is Aug. 3.
