National Fisherman

The Gloucester City Council presented Scott Memhard with the hat trick of political support Tuesday night when it joined Mayor Carolyn Kirk and the city’s state legislative contingent to support the removal of Cape Pond Ice’s Commercial Street property from the city’s Designated Port Area.
 
The council voted 7-0, with councilor-at-large Joe Ciolino recusing himself and councilor Sefatia Romeo Theken voting “present,” to express its support for Memhard’s quest to excise his property from the city’s DPA, which requires that 50 percent of any parcel within its boundaries carry a marine industrial and water-dependent use.
 
At the behest of Kirk, state Senate Minority leader Bruce Tarr and state Rep. Ann-Margaret Ferrante currently are in the midst of drafting a bill that would remove the Cape Pond Ice property, located at 104-106A Commercial St., from the DPA.
