Utility proposes fishing pier
ST. JOHNSBURY ó A Planning Commission in St. Johnsbury has approved a power companyís proposal to build a fishing pier.
Planners have recommended a review of Green Mountain Powerís offer.
The Caledonian-Record reported that Green Mountain Power in February proposed installing the fishing pier at Fred Mold Park at the confluence of the Passumpsic and Moose rivers. After itís built, St. Johnsbury would take ownership and maintain it.
Town officials say the utility is proposing the pier in order to meet re-licensing requirements. Power companies seeking licenses are often required to construct public installations like fishing piers and canoe launches.
