Commissioner Reports:

Commissioner O’Laughlin had several calls regarding why the Christmas Tree lighting ceremony was not an event this year. After investigation, the man who was going to donate the tree forgot and so the events committee cancelled Santa and the gifts for children. The Kiwanis put lights on the small Maple tree on the Port property instead. In 2014, the Port would be willing to coordinate efforts in getting a Christmas tree for the community. Discussion on the Port purchasing Commercial rental property continued and the conclusion was to find out what kinds of rents can be collected and a business plan be implemented prior to making any decisions on a purchase.


Port Maintenance Reports:

People are still using the Hoodsport Trail Park and it was determined to keep the park open unless there is a wind storm or snow storm for the public’s safety.


Port Operations Manager Report:

A laminated map of the Olympic peninsula will be framed and put on the side of the building in the spring. A new contract stating all the duties the maintenance contractors do was signed with Hoodsport Services. A Delegation of Authority for 2014 was done for the Port Operations Manager. Having read and reviewed the Delegation of Authority, Commissioner O’Laughlin made a motion to approve, Commissioner Petz seconded and it was signed as Resolution R13-02.
