Edgartown selectmen this week accepted a $492,332 bid from White Brothers-Lynch Corp. to replace a number of brick sidewalks and curbs in the downtown business district. The project will be financed with approximately 70 per cent funds appropriated by voters at the past two annual town meetings, and 30 per cent from state transportation allotments.

About 2,000 linear feet of curbing is slated for replacement, along with 1,200 square yards of aging brick sidewalk, according to highway superintendent Stuart Fuller. The streets involved are Dock street, Main street, North Water street, Winter street, and Church street.

Also at their Monday meeting, selectmen clarified confusion over the year-round liquor license held by Isola restaurant. Selectmen voted to send a warning letter for previous violations involving hours of operation and entertainment. Owner Peter Sullo, who attended the meeting, agreed to remain open during a specified set of hours on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, while serving both takeout and dine-in food from the adjoining pizzeria. Mr. Sullo told selectmen he will submit the specific hours in writing at a later date.
