Edgartown selectmen approved new mooring regulations for Edgartown harbor on Monday, stipulating that boats applying for a mooring must pay state excise tax to obtain an annual mooring permit.

Harbor master Charlie Blair presented the amendments to mooring regulations, which state that if excise tax is paid to another town in the commonwealth, a copy of the paid bill should be sent to the harbor master before the mooring can be used. Out-of-state excise tax payments will not be accepted. In other business, selectmen accepted a bid for de-icing salt for the coming season at $55 a ton.
