West Tisbury selectmen postponed for one more week a decision on whether to allow the outdoor farmers’ market to extend its season into late October.

The proposal by market managers, who have seen a successful season this summer outdoors at the Agricultural Society fairgrounds, has already been signed off on by the town zoning board of appeals, conservation commission and Vineyard Conservation Society, according to selectmen.

At their meeting Wednesday, two of the three selectmen said they were ready to vote for the extension as well, but the vote was delayed after selectman Kent Healy said he would like a little time to study all the information at hand.

Selectman Cynthia Mitchell and Jeffrey (Skipper) Manter 3rd both said they would support the extension.

Broader questions remain ongoing about use and activity on the grounds of the Ag Society, which is covered by a conservation restriction that accompanied the sale of the land from the family of Edwin Newhall Woods to the society many years ago.

At a meeting two weeks ago, Mr. Manter had also questioned whether the farmers’ market was adhering to state guidelines which mandate that most products be locally sourced.

On Wednesday, building inspector Joe Tierney said the market is meeting all the correct requirements.

Ms. Mitchell suggested that the extension be granted for this season, and “to dig deeper into it if you have questions, I mean, it’s been going all summer,” she said.

Market co-manager Collins Heavener also attended the meeting.

In the end, Mr. Healy said he wanted another week to research all the issues.

Ms. Mitchell asked her fellow selectmen to come prepared to vote on the matter next week.

“Any questions that arise towards the more granular details of this we can look into for next year,” she said.

Mr. Manter agreed.

“I’m planning to vote in favor, I would just like a little clarification, that’s all,” he said.

In other business Wednesday, town hall employees will soon return to work after selectmen gave town administrator Jennifer Rand a green light to activate phase three of the town hall reopening plan.

“The Island’s numbers are mercifully very low,” Ms. Rand said, referring to case counts. After a meeting with members of the town reopening committee last week, Ms. Rand said all agreed that “we’re well situated to look at moving into phase three.”

Town employees will return to work on a regular schedule unless they have a documented medical reason not to, or are a caretaker for someone in a high-risk category.

“One of the big pieces of phase three is making some real changes in town hall and we’ve spent a fair amount of time and money making changes to the way cubicles are set up and raising partitions,” Ms. Rand said.

Restricted public access to town hall will remain unchanged. The lobby remains open for public restroom access, and drop boxes inside and outside the building are used to deliver documents to town officials.

Janice Haynes, administrative assistant to the finance committee, said she has “stopped in a few times, seen what they’ve done with my space and the space in general, and in hearing what Jen said, I personally am comfortable with it. I feel like I will be safe behind my divider and I don’t personally see a problem with it.”

Mr. Tierney echoed the comments. “I think Jen has done an awesome job making these new dividers work and I feel comfortable with employees coming back and working with the general public outside of the office,” he said.

Selectmen also voted to set the special town meeting warrant for this fall, pending final review by the town personnel board.

The meeting will be held Oct. 6 at 4 p.m. in the Tabernacle in Oak Bluffs, the same place where annual town meeting was held. Similar to annual town meeting, selectmen unanimously approved a reduced quorum of 30 voters.

Also Wednesday, Ron Ferreira was appointed as the town plumbing inspector, and Susan Silk was appointed as an associate member of the complete streets committee.
