OLD BUSINESS ITEMS
NEW BUSINESS ITEMS
Phase II Dock Project: Next phase of piling and pile cap replacement to be bents 56, 57, 58. Removal of 22 existing creosote piling replaced with 9 steel piling and pile caps. Bents 5, 6 to be replaced. Remaining piling to be replaced (maximum 20) to be determined based on pile sounding performed in 2013 and engineering evaluations performed in 2013. Les Fitch to identify balance of bents to be replaced. Replacement of the ladder at the end of the dock is to be added to scope of work for Phase II. Quigg Brothers quote for entire 2015 Phase II project: $ 235,000. Anticipated work window in mid-September 2015 – 2 to 3 week process.
Commissioner Lane discussed conversations with Cashmere Bank to refinance existing General Obligation Bond to maintain existing payment schedule of $38,000 per year and extend maturity date to June 2031. As with existing bond, no penalties for pre-payment. To be determined: Does bond origination fee change? If not, borrow funds now.
Discussion as to timing of Phase II project, does it need to be completed in 2015 and are other sources of revenue available via grants? We may have until July/August 2016 to obtain grants and then proceed with Phase II project. No real need to wait and no downside to proceeding immediately while we know the permit and approval process based on 2014 Phase I project. Port taxes will always be paid and the necessary funds will be available to service the debt obligation and continue to invest reserve funds. Perhaps grant options will be available for future phase of construction concentrating on the Head of the Dock.
Commissioner Lane made a motion to move forward with Phase II project immediately, Seconded by Commissioner Cookson, passed unanimously.
Question from attendee: What is the long-term plan for dock repair? A: A 20 pile replacement limit per year which dictates any work plan, sequence determined from two different engineering reports and pile sounding data from 2013.
Connie Reckord anticipates a new or revised SEPA checklist form from Kitsap County in the near future.
Engineering plans from Quantum Engineering for the end of the dock were presented to Connie Reckord and Commissioner Henderson.
Deck Replacement schedule is based on repair and maintenance as existing deck boards are evaluated and slated for replacement. No expansion of existing footprint.
Commissioner Lane will enlist volunteers to install replacement deck boards and all volunteers will sign the necessary waivers for volunteers as provided with Washington State Labor and Industries. Supporting deck stringers will be inspected during deck board replacement as will all railing fasteners.
Commissioner Henderson to update existing Small Works Roster on Port of Indianola website
Commissioner Cookson discussed adoption of revised Comprehensive Plan. Need to re-run public notice for a 2 week period due to reschedule of the January 2015 Port Commissioners Meeting. Anticipate adoption of revised Comprehensive Plan via Resolution at March 17, 2015 Commissioners Meeting.
Matt McGinnis will be asked to remove the existing Comprehensive Plan from the Port website following adoption of revised Comprehensive Plan.
Head of Dock information and project considerations – Terry Reckord presented images of existing issues and a range of options from simple replacement with ADA improvements, access improvements and major renovation and dock deck expansion. This might prove to be a good candidate for grant funding as well as potential parks funding. Exact Port property boundaries need to be determined. The range of options will require public input.
