The Edgartown select board voted to appoint Rob Morrison as the new town shellfish constable Tuesday.

Mr. Morrison has been deputy constable for the past 10 years and is a marine biologist and Edgartown native.

“He’s pretty versed in Edgartown waters, the good and the bad,” town administrator James Hagerty said at the meeting Tuesday.

He will replace longtime Edgartown shellfish constable Paul Bagnall, who retired Jan. 1.

Mr. Morrison previously worked at Coop’s Bait and Tackle Shop for 10 years, and Mr. Hagerty described him as “very qualified,” recommending the promotion.

“We’re really fortunate to have a great shellfish resource in Edgartown, and a great community surrounding it, both recreational and commercial,” Mr. Morrison told the board. “I really appreciate the opportunity to maintain and protect the resource going forward. And I just look forward to leading the department into the future.”

Also Tuesday the select board learned that Ted Rosbeck will not seek reappointment to the Martha’s Vineyard Commission, after one year servng in the position. Mr. Rosbeck was not present at the meeting.

The town will advertise for interested candidates.

Angela Gompert, the administrator for the Vineyard Transit Authority, gave an update on the ongoing project to install electric charging stations at the Church Street bus station.

“We are finally digging in the ground on Church Street,” Ms. Gompert said.

The road work, which involves moving a water line and Eversource conduit, will be done in February, she told the select board.

The $1.2 million project will refurbish the station and add electric bus induction charges. The project is due to be completed in April.

The deadline to apply for Edgartown’s new climate change committee is Jan. 7, Mr. Hagerty said.
