Some private citizens hope the town of Liberty Grove can save an access point to the bay with the purchase of a commercial lot in Ellison Bay. It marks at least the second time the town plans to enter negotiations with owners of J&M Fisheries to purchase the parcel currently used by the commercial fishing business owned by the Weborg family. After electors soured on plans to purchase the property four years ago, Liberty Grove Town Chairperson John Lowry says residents are afraid of what could happen if it is not purchased for the public.
The discussion was just part of Liberty Grove’ s annual meeting held earlier this month, which Lowry says featured a very positive audit of the town’s finances.
