PSJ Commissioners balk on Eastern waiver

Director of Public Works John Grantland agreed, telling commissioners the work for his department would be minimal.

“The line is there, they will pay for the meter, I think we should waive the fee to have a lot of jobs,” Buzzett said.

Magidson said his sense from the board was a preference to wait until Gibson was in town – later this week – to further explain the precedent he cited in his letter to commissioners and to take the issue up at a special meeting within the next two weeks.

“We are just trying to be fair,” Magidson said. “There is no indication this is a deal-breaker. But Eastern deserves an answer. We do not want to muck up this process.”

Kennedy added, “Nobody is going to stop Eastern Shipbuilding. We are being responsible.
