Tischer leaves Port 2 board of commissioners

Commissioners of Port District 2 are looking for a new member of their board.

It was the last meeting for Commissioner Lee Tischer, who represents the Puget Island portion of the district. He was elected to the Wahkiakum County Board of Commissioners this fall and has resigned to join that board.

The district is advertising for applicants (see page 9 of this edition); applications are due on January 8. The board meets monthly.

In other business, Manager Jeff Smith reported that construction of a new drainfield has been completed and passed its inspections.

In the future, port staff will landscape the area and install barriers to prevent people from driving on it.

In other business:

The board approved a prorated refund of $444.47 to long term residential campers who have purchased a house and moved out of the park on Dec. 10. Their monthly rental fee was $635.00.

Commissioner Brian O'Connor agreed to continue as chair of board for 2021, with Commissioner Austin Burkhalter set to follow in 2022.

Smith announced that staff had constructed and erected a holiday lighting display that the public can view during evening hours.

The board met in executive session to evaluate performance of an employee and took no action after reconvening in open session.
