The Dukes County commission appointed Tain Leonard Peck as the county’s representative to the Cape and Vineyard Electric Cooperative at a meeting Wednesday.

In other business, commissioners added Juneteenth to the county’s list of legal holidays.

County manager Martina Thornton said repairs to the fencing on State Beach are underway and there is a plan to install informational kiosks by the big and little bridges.

“They’re going to have information about what can be seen on the beach and how people can negatively affect the environment if they chose to leave trash behind,” Ms. Thornton said.
