The long agenda for the Tisbury selectmen this week included topics that ranged from oil in ponds to drugs in taxis, from the competence of moped drivers to interpersonal relations within town committees, from the construction of sidewalks on State Road to the dredging of the harbor. The board even looked beyond town boundaries to consider ways it might help its cash-strapped neighbor, Oak Bluffs.

On the external relations front, board chairman Geoghan Coogan suggested Tisbury should offer whatever help it could to Oak Bluffs.

“They’re in a real jam over there,” he said. “We pride ourselves here on the Vineyard of helping each other out. We should be reaching out to Oak Bluffs.”

The other selectmen agreed, and town administrator John Bugbee told the board he had already made an offer of help.

Among the areas mentioned by Mr. Coogan and his fellow selectmen were animal control, building and zoning, shellfish and the library.

Mr. Coogan suggested Edgartown and West Tisbury should do likewise.

Later he conceded the offer would rely on the goodwill of town employees; the board could not force them to help another town, but if Tisbury workers had a little spare time, they could offer it to Oak Bluffs with the town’s blessing, Mr. Coogan said.

Tuesday’s meeting began with a discussion about whether the selectmen should cancel or just suspend the taxi license of a woman driver, pulled over a couple of weeks ago. Police chief Daniel Hanavan told them the driver, Sherry Stewart, had first been stopped for negligent driving, but that she was subsequently found to be in possession of a controlled substance, Suboxone, a drug used in treatment of opiate addiction, but widely abused.

He asked that her license be revoked because she was a risk to public safety.

Tristan Israel suggested that because she had not yet been found guilty of the charges, the board might just suspend the license.

But it was decided that the license would be revoked and she could re-apply for it if necessary.

On matters related to the waterfront, the most fiery came up during the otherwise-routine annual reappointment of members of committees.

Jeff Kristal declared the Tashmoo management committee “dysfunctional” because of personal conflicts between certain members and harbor master Jay Wilbur. “I’m tired of having Jay Wilbur get beat up every time he walks in,” M. Kristal said.

He upbraided the committee for overstepping its authority, saying they did not set policy, but merely advised the selectmen.

“I want to shake it up. I really do,” he said.

Mr. Israel protested that he had seen nothing so egregious as to warrant wholesale changes, and one member of the committee, Lyn Fraker, protested that when the committee saw things not being done, or being done wrongly, they had to let people know. She conceded: “I have been very vocal in expressing frustration.”

In the end, the selectmen decided to call all the current committee members before them at their next meeting, along with two or three others who have expressed interest in joining, to consider changes.

Also time-consuming was consideration of the complexities of dredging parts of the harbor, and the disposition of the dredged sand took rather longer. After three years, the town continues to have problems relating to state protections of eelgrass, some of which could be covered by one disposal option. The selectmen were told that it is possible to buy a way out of the problem, by paying a mitigation fee against any damage to eelgrass beds, but it is not cheap.

It was resolved that the town was not willing to risk incurring an extra cost, which could run to $200,000, although waterfront property owners along West Chop, who want the sand to counter serious erosion problems, should be approached about possibly buying the sand.

Still on the waterfront, selectmen gave the nod to a regular bathymetric survey of Lake Tashmoo, at a cost of $1,500, and discussed the problem of sand accretion near the north groin at Chip Chop, owned by Mike Nichols and Diane Sawyer. The question was, who owned the sand, and could it be taken away without getting into a legal fight?

Mr. Israel suggested the town talk to the homeowners first.

The board became bogged down on another Lake Tashmoo issue — the long controversy about the refueling of commercial fishing boats from the town dock.

Against the recommendation of the Tashmoo management committee, the selectmen agreed last year to allow one vendor to refuel a handful of boats. The problem was no supplier responded when the town put out requests for proposals last year and earlier this year.

Now, however, Island Fuel, which used to supply boats before falling afoul of the committee, wants to resume service. Another RFP will be issued.
