Vendor permits

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Selectmen last week amended a section of the parking ordinance relating to permits for vendors using the turnout on south Main Street near Manset Corner.

In a 5-0 vote, selectmen set the number of permits at four. Two permits will be issued for 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The other two permits are for the same hours but on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

The permits, which are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, are available beginning March 1. Vendors could request permits for both periods, allowing them to be on the site six days each week.

Selectmen began requiring permits after concerns were raised about traffic and safety.
