Edgartown selectmen met briefly at their regular weekly Monday meeting, December 29, with nothing on the agenda except routine town business.

The selectmen accepted a letter from James Joyce, expressing his interest in continuing as Edgartown’s appointed representative on the Martha’s Vineyard Commission.

Police also accepted a letter from Martha’s Vineyard Parking Clerk Carol Grant, notifying them of her retirement. Selectmen agreed to send Ms. Grant a letter of appreciation for her 15 years of service. Ms. Grant asked the board to appoint Donna Michalski as parking clerk. Ms. Michalski is a senior financial clerk who works for the Dukes County treasurer’s office.

Finally, the board voted to cancel the next regular meeting, which was scheduled for January 5. They will meet next on January 12.

“That’s all the business we have,” chairman Art Smadbeck said. “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. See you next year.”
