Port 2 names manager
June 23, 2022
Commissioners of Port District No. 2 on Tuesday adopted a resolution appointing Samuel Shogren as port manager.
The port's previous manager resigned in January, and Assistant Manger Terina Davis has since served as interim manager. Shogren's first official day on the job was yesterday (Wednesday).
In other business, Davis reported that the port commission:
--Decided to name the old Methodist church building the Carlton Appelo Annex to honor Appelo, one of the district's original commissioners, for everything he did for the port;
--Decided to break down bids for repairing the annex roof to see if there is a partial option to just fix leaking areas. The port received one bid out of 11 requests to contractors for re-roofing the building; the bid came in at $89,000.
Interim Manager Davis also started a discussion about potentially moving the Skamokawa Vista Park office to the Appelo Annex this winter and renting out the park model that is the current office. No decision was made, and conversation will continue at the next meeting.
