by Nancy Beal

 Jonesport selectmen discussed the cost of clam licenses at their June 21 meeting. Presently, resident diggers pay $80 for the privilege, while non-residents, who obtain licenses through a lottery system, pay twice that. Although the authority to set license fees rests with the town’s Shellfish Conservation Committee, selectmen, noting the gap between revenue and costs of running that committee, weighed in last week.
