Discussed the proposal made by WSU 4H Forestry crew for replanting of the Native plants.  It was suggested by the WSU 4H administrator to utilize the Naval ROTC group to help with planting of the native plants.

The Celebrate Hoodsport Fireworks event was discussed; the Port of Hoodsport hired two State Troopers to ensure through traffic on Hwy 101 at State Rt 119, two Deputy Sheriffs to ensure public safety, a tow truck driver on standby & provided a clean dock for Public use and the Pyrotechnics crew to set up the fireworks.  The public restrooms were monitored for cleanliness, supplies; the septic company was hooked up and on standby.  It was a consensus that this year’s event was the most peaceful and without incident.  An ‘event application’ will be provided for groups who are interested in using the Ports property for their events to dispel future confusion of who has permission to utilize Port property.  A meeting will be requested with the Hoodsport Community Events Committee to discuss the date anticipated for 2013’s Celebrate Hoodsport.
