Phase 2 discussion
Commissioner Henderson and Art Langlie met with Quigg Brothers to discuss the next phase. End of the dock is #1 priority. Quigg would remove and replace decking. Nine pilings would be used to support the end of the dock and remaining permitted pilings would be chosen from the length of the dock.
Commissioner Lane has talked to Cashmere Bank about increasing the debt from the existing $252,000.00 to $484,000.00. Phase 2 would add an additional 13 years of debt obligation to the current 7 years of debt while keeping the same payment amount.
Commissioner Henderson noted that the Port has two years remaining on the permit and that the assumption is that the rules for piling replacement will only become more restrictive in the future.
Engineering drawings of the end of the dock will be required. Art Langlie will follow up on the drawings.
Commissioner Henderson will contact Connie Reckord and Lisa Fitch to start the permit submittal process.
The Port will vote on the Phase 2 financing at the next meeting.
