In his first report to the Oak Bluffs selectmen this week, interim fire chief Martin Greene outlined a plan to begin business inspections later next month.

Chief Greene, who began work April 4, said businesses will receive the normal inspection packet, but there will be a cover letter explaining what they can and can’t do given the status of the coronavirus pandeimc. The chief said only one person from the business will be permitted on site when the inspections are done.

Also Tuesday selectmen agreed to extend shellfish licenses to June 1, at the request of shellfish constable Chuck Fisher. Selectmen also gave Mr. Fisher latitude to open more areas for shellfishing as he sees fit, to help promote social distancing during the pandemic.

Selectmen appointed assistant town clerk Colleen Morris as acting town clerk until the next town election is held. Ms. Morris takes over temporarily for town clerk Laura Johnston, who retires April 23.

In his report to the board, town administrator Robert Whritenour gave an update on a number of projects, including the North Bluff beach restoration, which was completed last month.

He also said the town recently got a green light from the Army Corps of Engineers for emergency dredging to remove sand from the harbor channel and reinforce the channel jetty.

Finally, Mr. Whritenour said the new town hall project remains on track, with final cost estimates expected by April 24.

“If there’s any saving grace for the delay of the town meeting, it’s that they’ll have ample time prior to town meeting to get those final numbers and we’ll get the chance to get that information out to the public,” Mr. Whritenour said.

Held by videoconference, the meeting was interrupted by so-called zoom bombers, who hurled racial slurs and jarring images at the screen. Meeting participants ignored the intrusion by the online hackers.
