Tisbury selectmen meet Thursday night


With severe weather conditions predicted to last through Tuesday, the Tisbury selectmen postponed their regularly scheduled meeting to 5 pm tonight, November 1, at the Katharine Cornell Theatre. Two public hearings about new stop signs, planned for Tuesday’s meeting, were rescheduled for the selectmen’s next meeting on November 13.

The selectmen are holding the public hearings in response to requests made by Department of Public Works director Fred LaPiana at a meeting on October 16. Mr. LaPiana asked the selectmen to approve the creation of a three-way stops and crosswalks at the intersections of Causeway Road and Skiff Avenue, and at Franklin Street and Woodlawn Avenue. The purpose is to slow traffic and increase pedestrian and bicyclist safety, Mr. LaPiana said.

The selectmen also plan to hold a tax rate classification public hearing at the November 13 meeting.
