In October, Southport selectmen negotiated a lease extension with Mike Nguyen and Louise Monroe to continue operating Cozy’s Dockside for three more years. On Jan. 4, the deal became official with both parties signing the agreement. Last year, selectmen awarded the lease to Nguyen and Monroe for one year. After a successful year, Nguyen and Monroe requested a three-year lease under the same financial details.
The extension calls for operations beginning in May and extending into mid-October at $2,500 per month.
In other action, selectmen received a mailed intent to file a Department of Environmental Protection wastewater permit from an unknown sender. Selectman Climo Smith reported the letter was not signed and the envelope did not have a return address. “We don’t know who sent it. So we put a question mark by it, and left it on the desk,” he said.
