Edgartown’s new dredge has arrived and is ready for action, dredge committee members told the town selectmen Monday.

Last spring town meeting voters approved spending $600,000 to replace the old dredge, which was 21 years old. The replacement is currently stationed at the north wharf, dredge committee chairman Ed Handy said.

Projects on deck for this year include work at Cape Pogue and near the town landing in Katama Bay.

Sand dredged from Katama will be placed at Fuller Street Beach.

Edgartown School students have been asked to suggest names for the new dredge. Committee administrator Juliet Mulinare said suggestions include Drex, Isadora, Sandy, Mister Sand, John Cena, Sandra, Dredgy and Dredgery.

“Some tough ones to choose from,” selectman Michael Donaroma said. “That’s a big assignment for the dredge committee.”

In other business, selectmen approved the removal of a shade tree at 80 South Summer street. The 35-foot-tall elm is diseased and tree warden Stuart Fuller said he agreed with the removal.

A replacement tree approved by Mr. Fuller must be planted by May 31.
