As a part of its effort to make regulations more concise and accessible, the Hingham Harbormaster's office is welcoming public comments on proposed changes to mooring regulations.

Because the rules are recorded in both the town's bylaws and the harbormaster's regulations, Harbormaster Ken Corson III said the town wants to bring the the rules in one place.

“We’re bringing this stuff up to date in one document that'll be comprehensive," he said.

A draft of the new regulations is available on the town's web site now. Corson said he expects second and third drafts will also be available on the town's Web site by Friday, Jan. 15, and Friday, Jan. 22.

Approximately 200 boats are usually moored in Hingham Harbor.

Corson says he thinks it will be the end of February before the entire process -- which includes securing the approval of the selectmen -- will be completed.

Corson says he has already received feedback and questions from the public about the proposed changes and expects little controversy.

"There’s nothing earth-shattering from the way we do business now," he said.

The public may comment through the town's Web site or at 781-741-1450.
