Phase II discussion – Commissioner Henderson reviewed the current status.
Based on discussions with Quigg Bros. and Quantum Engineering confirmation, the number of steel pilings across the end of the dock will be reduced from 4 to 3. This reduction in bents 57 and 58 will allow for another bent to be replaced. Essentially all the end of the dock will be new steel pilings and very sturdy.
The current quote for Phase II work is $250.064.35. A further quote is expected to include final changes which Commissioner Lane will take to Cashmere Valley Bank to start the Phase II bond addition. Mobilization is planned for September 7 through September 25, 2015.

Also noted, that all kayaks have been moved from under the dock.
Resolution 2015-03 Petty Cash Account Dissolution
Commissioner Henderson moved to accept the resolution to dissolve the petty cash account because this account was no longer needed and the custodian has relinquished all funds to the Auditor.
Seconded by Commissioner Cookson. Passed unanimously.
Next meeting will be May 19, 2015 - Indianola Clubhouse 7:00 PM
OPEN TO PUBLIC COMMENT -
A question was raised about the plank donation funds. It was suggested that the Port should clarify to donors and the community that we have reached the financial goal for the actual plank replacement project. Since plank ownership is symbolic and we are going to need to replace the railings and perform other general maintenance requirements, the Commissioners and those present agreed that donors to the fund would still be considered plank owners.
COMMISSIONERS COMMENTS –
Commissioner Lane will find out the cost of railings.
Commissioner Henderson has plans to redo and improve the head of the dock and transition from the stair landing.
EXECUTIVE SESSION – NONE
ADJOURNMENT – Commissioner Henderson moved to adjourn the meeting at 7:53 PM, Seconded by Commissioner Cookson, passed unanimously.
