Port Commissioners to work through light agenda on January 27

VANCOUVER, Wash. – The Port of Vancouver Board of Commissioners will hold its second 2009 regular meeting Tuesday at 9:30 a.m., with a light agenda.

Just one action item is on the docket for Commissioners Nancy Baker, Jerry Oliver and Brian Wolfe to consider. Two items of unfinished business will also be taken up during the public meeting. The commission will hear a presentation from the Parks Foundation.

In the only action item, Commissioners will be asked to authorize Executive Director Larry Paulson to execute an engineering contract amendment with Westmar Worley Parsons for the design and construction administration of West Vancouver Freight Access project No. 4 in the amount of $485,430 for a total contract amount of $1,009,430. The port is currently in the final stages of permitting and design. Staff anticipates advertising for bids in April with construction in July or August.

Under unfinished business, commissioners will review both commission and staff assignments within the organizations in which the port participates, and may make changes to those assignments as they see fit; a discussion of a contract with Columbia River Economic Development Council; and discussion around the Clark County Freight Mobility Study. Commissioners will also consider their endorsement for the Clark County Transportation Alliance’s Legislative Agenda for 2009.

The meeting will be televised live on CVTV for Comcast customers, and will be streamed live on the web at www.cvtv.org. Recordings of the meeting will also be archived on the website.
