Granite Pier Committee

The Granite Pier Committee manages all the affairs of Granite Pier in the interest of the Town; produces all policies and contracts, handles all mailings and receipts, supervises the seasonal employees,  provides oversight and authority for all Pier activities, and advises the Board of Selectmen and the Town with matters pertaining to Granite Pier.

In April of 2019 the Board of Selectman accepted newly recorded but long standing 'Rules and Procedures' of Granite Pier. This document will act as a guide for those with questions on use of the pier and for those using the pier for storage and daily use. Please take a look at this document in the PDF's on the upper left of this page.
