Jamestown Press: If the councilors decide to restore the old East Ferry pier, the town should foot most of the bill, said Harbor Chairman Michael de Angeli at the commission’s January 8 meeting.

Angeli was responding to recent comments from resident William Kelly about restoring the crumbling dock.
