He mentioned that some years ago <br /> the city had provided citizens with a tips sheet for what could and could not be put into the sewage <br /> system, and wondered if that could be redistributed. <br /> Brooke Andrews was from a commercial fishing family and was interested in having a <br /> public crane. She was most concerned with safety for fishermen.She thought the commercial fish tax <br /> could be used towards the crane. <br /> Charles McEldowney was the plant manager at Icicle Fisheries. He said if a crane was put <br /> in,he would like to see it be large enough to be safe. He said a crane was safer to use than a boom <br /> truck,but a crane required proper training. He advised that any fish not processed in town did not <br /> yield any revenue from the fish tax,and it was likely that fish offloaded with a public crane would be <br /> processed elsewhere. <br />
