During the regular meeting of the Orono City Council on June 26, the Council addressed a variety of issues.
With the Fourth of July approaching, the Council and city officials have safety at the forefront of their minds.
The Long Lake Fire Department brought a site plan for an emergency dock in hopes of gaining the Council’s approval before moving on the watershed district.
The department hopes to put an emergency dock for the exclusive use of the Long Lake Fire Department boat off of city-owned property near Molly’s Corner in the 700 block of Shoreline Drive. However, due to the inability to a meet a 20-foot setback required by the LMCD, the department will be looking for a variance from the LMCD.
According to the fire chief, the new dock would facilitate rapid response calls for service, especially in the Big Island area.
