Meeting Notes: Ferry Committee 2010.03.01


March 1, 2010


Present:  Glen Veal (Chair), Allen Bush, Carl Cady,  Dyvon Havens, Steve Orsini,


The meeting was called to order at 7 PM for the purpose of discussing the upcoming ballot to be issued re: the Ferry Committee revised charter.


Discussion was held to decide whether additional items should be placed on the ballot for polling purposes. The two items discussed were: 1) Asking if riders would be willing to pay double fare for an 8pm to 10 pm ferry on Sundays (particularly for Summer schedule) and 12M ferries on Friday and Saturday nights; 2) Asking riders if they had a preference re: annual haul-out times. Following much debate, it was decided to explore using the F.C. web site as a place to receive input on these and other topics. We also agreed that we needed to review the pros and cons of various times of the years prior to asking the ridership for their input. Allen Bush will develop wording to be included on the back of the ballot instruction page. The wording will include an update on Ferry Committee activities and encouragement of voters to check out the F.C. web site.
