To the Editor:
Last Thursday evening, at the second entertainment application hearing, the Board of Selectmen unanimously affirmed the Entertainment LIvense application that had been recently presented to the town officials by Nils Johnson.
At the beginning of the meeting, Mr. Johnson and the Board of Selectmen had acknowledged that they had read letters and e-mails which voiced town-wide concern as to the entertainment application as stated. The Selectmen also stated that they received many phone calls voicing concern.
It was heartening to hear Mr. Johnson state that entertainment is “only a small part of what we do,” and state clearly how special Mattapoisett is and always has been to him.
The Selectmen cautioned Mr. Johnson and Ms. Perry as to the tremendous responsibility that these licenses carry with them.
We want to congratulate Mr. Johnson and Ms. Perry, and wish them the best of luck as they pursue their dream of the Inn at Shipyard Park.
Maureen and George Butler
