Commissioner Reports:
Commissioner Petz said in regards to the septic drain field situation Jim Ayres was able to give a brief plan of action and was asked to give a more definitive plan. Jim responded, he has been on vacation and will write the plan this week. After an inspection of the drain field which was dry and at looking at the diverter valve receptacles which had all of the valve covers back on, Commissioner O’ Laughlin said he would like to see the restrooms open back up. Commissioner Petz is waiting for the detailed plan of action so Jim can call the County environmental health department and ask for permission to open the restrooms back up with limited hours to see if everything is in good working order. Commissioner O’ Laughlin said he received a phone call from County Commissioner Shutty who received calls from local business owners regarding the sewer system. This issue was brought up several years ago to put in a sewer system in phases and has cost business owners in Belfair to pay excessive amounts of money monthly and has put other business owners out of business. Phase II was to go through Potlatch and Phase III was to go through Hoodsport. After hearing what it cost the people in Belfair, the people in Potlatch and Hoodsport did not want to go forward with it. The new business owners were not here yet so they were not aware of the exorbitant costs.

Port Maintenance Reports:
Hoodsport Trail Park: S. Lindgren said the Gazebo that the Lion’s Club donated to the Port for its upper parking area at the Hoodsport trail park has been re assembled and they are putting a roof on it. We received the metal reflective trail park signs and with minor modification, they will be placed at trail heads using metal posts.

Hoodsport Marina, Dock & Waterfront Park: The dock repair contractors started working on the dock repair on May 21st and expect it to be completed by June 9th. S. Lindgren reported that even in a stiff north wind, there was no squeaking from the pilings. Caution tape has been put up and signs to warn the public about the dock repair.

Public Restrooms: Currently closed to the public by the County environmental health. The floor will be repainted with the textured paint before re opening the restrooms. Special tamper proof screws will be placed on the valve covers at the drain field. The game camera is up at the drain field, B. Osborne will be checking the images.

Port parking/maintenance shed: Household trash is regularly being left in all of the trash receptacles at the port restroom, waterfront park area and by the Port dumpster.
