The Board of Aldermen, at its discretion and as a result of careful study of unusual and difficult situations which occur, may waive certain limitations as to dimensions and location if it appears to be clearly in the best public interest and safety. Provided that the Board of Alderman shall not be authorized by this exception to permit a pier to be constructed beyond the pier line as shown on the official pier line map. The construction of a pier or dock by the town at the terminus of streets or public areas shall not be limited by the requirements of this chapter.
