Town Of Yarmouth Takes Over Ferry Terminal Site

The old ferry terminal site in Yarmouth is about to get a make-over! The revived ferry service between the town and Portland, Maine is expected to be up and running by May. The site has for many years been the responsibility of the federal government but it now comes under the control of the Yarmouth Industrial Commission. Mayor Pam Mood says the area's Member of Parliament Greg Kerr dropped by the town hall on Friday and handed over responsibility for the terminal complex carrying with him the paperwork.

Mayor Mood says federal money for the renovations should be in the town's hands in a few days. She says a tender will be awarded shortly for the overall project. The work is expected to surpass 2.5-million dollars.
