About the Committee

The Waterways Advisory  Committee meets monthly for a good portion of the year to discuss various happenings and concerns dealing with the Town's extensive ocean and river waterways.   The committee is in close contact with the Harbors Department and hears a monthly report from the Assistant Harbormasters.   The committee oversees the Waterways Funds and approves its disbursement when drawn from.   In recent years the Waterways Fund has supported the Harbors Department budget both in its salaries and its acquisitions.  Money in the Waterways Fund comes from mooring fees and 50% of the boat excise tax collected by the Town.  Launching fees collected at the Town Wharf go into a fund set up for Town Wharf improvements.
