Port commissioners are Gene Warren, Dale McKinley and Earle Marvin. With all present Wednesday, the board:
BUDGET: Held a public hearing for 2014 budget in the amount of $564,665. No public comments were made. Following hearing, approved 1 percent levy increase and 2014 budget. While the total levy amount is increasing, the Port’s property tax rate per $1,000 of assessed property value will decrease because property values have risen in the Port district.
SURPLUS PROPERTY: Following a public hearing, approved declaring railroad track as surplus property so it can be sold.
BLUE MOUNTAIN STATION: Signed three year leases for Blue Mountain Station Artisan Food Center with Little Dipper Dairy and Big Kahuna Hot Sauce for 50 cents per square foot. Signed two year lease with Gypsy Girl Granola for 56 cents per square foot.
