Edgartown town administrator Pam Dolby told selectmen at a regular meeting on Monday that she and building inspector Lenny Jason are working with the contractor who is overseeing a development project at the Triangle to resolve parking woes at the Edgartown Post Office.
People have been unable to drive around the parking lot, and permanent handicap spots have been displaced, she said. Temporary signs have been stationed in buckets, but they are sometimes moved by patrons when they park.
“There’s also no designated handicap spot anymore, and people have seen people move in and pull the bucket to another spot,” Ms. Dolby said.
Ms. Dolby and Mr. Jason will meet with the contractor to reconfigure the temporary parking arrangement to ease disruptions, and will return the handicap spots to where they originally were, in front of the post office.
In other business, selectmen also agreed to accept two grants from the Edgartown Library Foundation to support the Edgartown library during the move to its new building. The foundation provided $8,225 for purchasing furniture and equipment, and $28,775 to clean, frame, restore, relocate, and display artwork, antiques, rare books, furniture, and equipment during the move to the new location.
