OLD BUSINESS ITEMS
NEW BUSINESS ITEMS
A. Port of Indianola Annual Report – Auditor Susan Henry has completed the Port Annual Report and has submitted the report to the Washington State Auditor’s Office. Commissioner Henderson thanked Susan for the extra time and effort required to complete this report.
B. Rail Cap Replacement – Commissioner Lane reported that his group of volunteers have completed nearly 50% of the railing caps and scheduled work parties are planned in the near future. Commissioner Lane reports that to date our dedicated volunteers have donated nearly 500 man hours to decking, stair treads and rail cap replacement – their dedication to our dock and maintenance is greatly appreciated.
C. Grant Update – Commissioner Cookson reported on the RCO grant. Commissioner Cookson will be presenting the Port Grant application in Olympia on May 25, 2016. Awards from the RCO board will be announced in the fall of 2016. Commissioner Henderson thanked Commissioner Cookson for his many hours of work to prepare the volume of documents necessary for submission of the Grant Package to the RCO Board.
D. Piling stubs – Commissioner Henderson will investigate the few remaining piling stubs at the end of the dock during low tide the first weekend of June 2016. These stubs are the remnants of the batter piles that were removed in 2015. During removal several of the piles ‘disintegrated’ due to internal rot. Hopefully the pile stubs can be cut near the sand level.
E. Swim Float and Ramp – Commissioner Henderson and Art Langlie are coordinating delivery of the new ramp as well as installation. The swim float will be in place in late May or early June.
F. Web Site – Following discussions with Cory Gregerson and Matt McGinnis the Commissioners have decided to utilize a 3rd party filtering service at minimal cost to alleviate the volume of spam received by the Commissioners. If this does not lessen the amount of spam the Commissioners will revisit the issue.
