Susan Henry signed and will submit the Levy Certification to the County Assessor.
Conceptual Head of Dock Designs: Connie and Terry Reckord drew and presented three possible designs for the head of the dock. Options were reviewed at the previous meeting. Major issues for consideration are ADA compliance, maintaining character of the dock, and consolidate necessary signage. Consensus of Commissioners and public discussion was in favor of Plan B, minimal changes with aesthetic and accessibility improvements. The full width of the existing bents would be maintained. There may be significant cost savings if some of the bents could be eliminated without major impact to the character of the dock. The Commissioners would like to have expanded engineering drawings and rough estimates of costs for discussion at the December Port meeting.
Next meeting will be November 17, 2015 - Indianola Clubhouse 7:00 PM
