Port commissioners are Gene Warren, Dale McKinley and Earle Marvin. With all present Wednesday, the board:
BLUE MOUNTAIN STATION: Discussed bids for the artisan food center but did not select one because the low bid was for $1,098,000. The amount budgeted was $900,000. The Port will hold a special meeting April 25 at 2 p.m. to discuss funding options, and is planning to seek a loan to cover the difference in cost. The Port also plans to apply for $10,000 in grant funding from the Dayton Columbia County fund to cover the cost of community kitchen equipment.
LYONS FERRY MARINA: Heard report on marina. Well repairs are progressing and construction on a handicapped fishing pad is expected to begin soon. The Port declared a port-owned four-wheeler surplus property and authorized selling it to the Marina.
