HARPSWELL — The Board of Selectmen approved changes to the town’s Robinhood Road ordinance and hired two part-time beach monitors, required under the terms of an agreement signed earlier this year for public access to Cedar Beach. 

The ordinance amendment creates as many as 17 designated parking spaces on the southern side of the town-owned road. Selectmen approved the amended ordinance following a public hearing that was unattended.

Selectmen also authorized Mary Ann Nauf and Judith Arndt to be the primary and back-up beach monitors for the public part of Cedar Beach, required by the agreement between the town and Rachel and Jonathan Aspatore, who own the property.

The monitors will be paid $10 per hour and receive compensation for mileage to and from the beach. They are expected to conduct regular patrols of the beach and be on call to address any public access issues that arise.
