H. Next Meeting – Tuesday, August 19, 2014 – Indianola Clubhouse 7:00 PM
OPEN TO PUBLIC COMMENT
Where does Indianola Road end and Port of Indianola property start? Is it possible to designate one ADA parking space allocated?
Questions must be answered by Kitsap County as the road-end is designated as a Fire Lane.
Commissioner Henderson does not believe that the Port owns any property within the road-end.
During the launch of the Fireworks barge Wally Frizell expressed dismay that the barnacles, etc. that fall off the Port swim float during winter storage make a mess on the beach. Port will ensure that cleanup is accomplished in future years. Additionally the Port will acknowledge the generosity of Wally Frizell for allowing winter storage of the swim float.
Commissioner Henderson received a telephone call from a Port Advisory Committee member about a community member installing 2x4 ladder rungs on a dock piling. Commissioner Henderson contacted the community member and requested that the ladder rungs be removed immediately as this was an extreme safety hazard as well as compromising the integrity of the wood piling. Ladder rungs were removed.
Commissioner Henderson to provide copies of Corps of Engineers documents to Advisory Committee members Connie Record and Lisa Fitch. Port of Indianola must comply with notification requirements to Corps of Engineers regarding construction start within three working days.
