January, 1893 - January 1893

At a public meeting to elect three new trustees for the new harbour, George MacKay, boatbuilder, Balintore, William MacKenzie, fisherman, 1 Port St., Balintore, and John Morrison, fisherman, Shandwick, were proposed by Donald MacKenzie, ground officer, Balintore, and seconded by George MacKay, fisherman, Bank St., Balintore, with no other nominees this was carried. The meeting also asked Mr. D Fraser, Balintore hotel, to contact the Postmaster General to supply telegraphic communications for the village and also to ask Mrs. Middleton, Clay of Allan, to open the new harbour. Our correspondent says it is a pity such meetings could not be conducted in a more orderly manner.
