Citizens Urge Re-Hiring of Harbormaster – A number of citizens appeared at the City Council meeting Monday evening in support of harbormaster Murl Trevethan, who resigned recently in a disagreement with the city manager. Ed Hatch, speaking as a fisherman of this area, spoke highly of Mr. Trevethan as an excellent harbormaster, “The best one along the entire coast,” he maintained, and voiced concern over the safety of boats and equipment at the docks in the absence of a harbormaster. The harbormaster issue, which ebbed and flowed like the tides throughout the meeting, finally led Mr. Dick Neve to propose an executive session following the meeting to discuss the matter. At the executive session, a compromise was worked out in which Mr. Trevethan would remain on the city payroll as assistant harbormaster; this would keep a man on duty throughout the busy season, allow the city to advertise for a new man and allow Mr. Trevethan to reach his retirement eligibility.
