The Town of Gibraltar approved the purchase of two property parcels with a price tag of $3.5 million that will benefit the municipal dock operations on the waterfront. Town Administrator Travis Thyssen says the meeting on Monday was well attended with nearly 200 people in attendance. The vote was approved by a 114-47 margin, for the land purchase of the Holiday Harbor Waterfront Cottages on Main Street and the docks adjacent to the town parking lot. Thyssen says that the township does not have any immediate plans for developing the new property.
The second agenda item was for the splitting of the clerk/treasurer position, which was passed by a 128-17 vote.
