I called weeks ago to ask that the hot dog guy be told the score, see ya later. If I can’t use the Swasey, the out of town vendor is out of luck too. This house voted yes to culverts and pipes. I told the appropriate folks that he would be angling to squeeze (what a joke) that huge rig into the boat ramp parking lot. Guess what? He was given comfort by Frank Ferraro to ask DPW today to take a boat /trailer slot.That ramp is heavily used all Summer by people from all over. I use that lot, and I live in Town . I do not understand why NO is not used anymore. This is really annoying, all of this stuff. When the talk of a hot dog vendor came up originally, the minds eye saw a cart, not a semi trailer.
I just got off the phone on this issue. Had to make an edit, I mistakenly included Mr Quandt as one with mustard on his shirt.
I really cannot understand why this matter requires more than a no. The original permit was for the Swasey, that is not available anymore. We are not bound to find another location for his business.
If you want to go down to the next Selectmen Meeting and prostrate yourself for hot dogs, feel free. The boat ramp lot is off limits.
I suggest a corner of the Auto Parts parking lot next to Friendly’s, rent a corner. High traffic count, you could hire a guy to jump around in a hot dog costume .
If a fellow gets in his truck with his boat attached and heads for the River, he should have a reasonable expectation of ramp parking. The 4 spaces dedicated for vehicles w/trailers during the boating season are always in use, including weekdays.
See you in 3 years.
