Edgartown selectmen set a date for a hearing on a rate increase on the Chappaquiddick ferry, discussed whether to allow more live music at Bad Martha’s on Upper Main street, and bid farewell to two town officials at their regular meeting Monday.

Chappy ferry business owners Peter Wells and Sally Snipes are requesting an increase from $12 to $13 for round-trip vehicle cash fares. Other rates would not be affected. Selectmen set a public hearing on the issue for May 6 at 4:10 p.m.

“I don’t think it’s going to make any difference because most of the people who live over there, they don’t use the cash fare,” selectman Arthur Smadbeck said.

In other business Josh Flanders, manager of Bad Martha’s brewery on Upper Main street, requested that the brewery be allowed to host live musicians four days per week in the summer, up from two days per week. Selectmen were hesitant, saying there were already concerns about noise and amplification.

“It’s not supposed to be a bar in the first place,” Mr. Smadbeck said of the brewery, which serves beer and appetizers during the summer until 7 or 9 p.m. in the evening.

Marilyn Look, who lives nearby, attended the meeting to share concerns.

“You say the amplifier is in the building. It kind of is, kind of isn’t. It’s in the doorway,” she said. Selectmen also received a letter of concern from abutter Gigi Condlin.

Selectmen continued the discussion to their May 13 meeting in order to be sure they hear from all concerned abutters.

“We have to be sure we’re on good footing. We’ve had complaints,” Mr. Smadbeck said. “I like entertainment, beer as much as anybody. We have to do it correctly.”

Selectmen also acknowledged two resignation letters. One was from Wendy Benedetto, director of senior services at the Edgartown Council on Aging

“She’s done a great job,” town administrator James Hagerty said.

There was also a resignation letter from Edith Blake, who serves on the historic district commission.

“She wrote that Henry Beetle Hough would be pleased with what the historic district commission has accomplished,” board chairman Margaret Serpa said. “She will be missed.”

Selectmen also granted a seasonal all-alcohol license to Isola restaurant on Church street.
