The Tisbury selectmen this week set plans in motion to clear the way for restaurants hoping to serve hard alcohol to diners this summer.

Selectmen will hold a public hearing on June 6 to discuss amendments to town regulations, following a vote at the annual town election last month that approved the addition of spirits to beer and wine sales in restaurants.

The new rules will apply to restaurants with more than 30 seats.

Proposed changes include replacing “wine and malt” with “all alcohol,” and setting hours on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. to accommodate brunch. Another change would reduce the number of abutters that an establishment needs to notify in the licensing process.

Currently, the town has six applications for amended licenses. Public hearings on the licenses begin on May 30. There are eight annual beer and wine licenses issued in town.

During a marathon meeting that ran for nearly four hours Tuesday evening, selectmen also issued an ultimatum to the owner of the sole moped rental establishment in town. Jason Leone, who owns and operates Island Adventure Rentals, is permitted to have 90 mopeds on his Beach Road property. It was discovered this week that Mr. Leone had been holding an estimated 40 to 50 mopeds that were registered in Oak Bluffs on a residential property in Vineyard Haven.

Mr. Leone told the selectmen he was holding the mopeds there while he reregistered them in Tisbury.

“You had asked me to move the Oak Bluffs bikes out of there,” he said. “I tried getting the mopeds that were registered in Oak Bluffs out of the Vineyard Haven location.”

The selectmen gave Mr. Leone until 5 p.m. on Sunday to reregister the mopeds in Tisbury, move them back onto the Adventure Rentals site, or face having his permit revoked.

They also asked him to remove all but seven of the mopeds currently lined up at the front of Adventure Rentals. Currently there are about 21 mopeds lined up in front of a barrier that separates the test track from the road. The selectmen amended a waiver for the test track from 50 by 24 feet to 50 by 21 feet, due to a calculation error.

In other business, a public hearing about conservation moorings saw strong feelings on both sides as boaters and harbor management debated the merits of so-called spar buoys. A subcommittee of the harbor management committee has drafted amended regulations that include detailed instructions for the configuration of the moorings, including an elastic attachment, chain and ball buoy. A moratorium on conservation moorings ended on May 24.

Selectmen approved interim regulations that included a detailed inspection protocol, but stopped short of requiring one type of buoy or a specific configuration for the moorings.

Harbor master John Crocker said that of the 750 moorings in Tisbury, 700 are ball buoys. He argued that spar buoys are more difficult to inspect and more likely to fail.

But several people who attended the meeting objected to the ball buoy requirement as well as limitations in the proposed regulations.

“I, for one, frankly resent having other people tell me that the system I have doesn’t work because it isn’t appropriate in their eyes,” said Harriet Barrow. Other arguments included the cost saving aspects of the spar buoys including eliminating the need to winter stick the mooring.

Selectmen decided they needed more information and will revisit the issue at a future meeting.

The board also gave the green light for two old houses to be demolished: one at 29 Franklin street, the other at 55 West William street. Both houses are more than 100 years old.

The Franklin street house demolition is already before the Martha’s Vineyard Commission, but the William street house must still go before the commission before it can be torn down. The Island Housing Trust wants to buy the house from the estate of Wayne Guyther and convert the property to affordable housing.

Selectmen also voted to ban mailboxes on the stretch of State Road between Main street and Edgartown Vineyard Haven Road.
