The Port 1 Board of Commissioners met briefly last Thursday to go over reports and say goodbye to Commissioner Bob Kizziar, whose term was ending.

“I’d like to thank you for your service to the community by being a commissioner,” Commissioner Scott Anderson told Kizziar. “You’ve done a wonderful job.”

“We want to thank you for your service and your work on the non-motorized dock,” Port Manager Jackie Lea added.

Brewery owners have received their permits, according to the manager’s report, and are moving forward with plans to erect a new building on the waterfront. A granite bench in memory of Leroy Wika has been purchased by his family and will be installed near the commercial fishermen memorial. The port will be planting 10 lilac trees that were recently donated, and they are planning to either move or remove the fence between town and port property. After a vehicle damaged a yurt, the port will be using driftwood to build barriers, hoping to avoid a similar event in the future. Meanwhile, beavers continue to do what beavers do, and more trees may have to come down on port property or risk damage to F-dock.

Finally, they reorganized the board for 2020. Scott Anderson will be president, Commissioner Brett Deaton becomes vice president, and incoming Commissioner Art Hedman will be the secretary.
