The Port Commission named five people to its newly-formed Park Advisory Board, a panel that would provide advice and guidance for management of Willow Grove Park and other recreational functions. Each Commissioner appointed one person from their district, along with a Willow Grove resident and a local student. Doug Averett chose Longview Parks Director Jennifer Wills out of his district; Jeff Wilson chose Josh Sutinen, and Bob Bagaason chose Ann Beal. Margaret Lapic was chosen as the Willow Grove resident representative, and Spencer Boudreau of Mark Morris High School will serve as the student representative.
At today’s regular meeting, the Port Commission plans to adopt its updated Strategic Plan, and they plan to discuss the Helenberg Boat Launch in Castle Rock. The Port Commission may also consider filling the Port’s Chief Executive Officer position at today’s meeting. Current Chief Operating Officer Norm Krehbiel has been serving as the Interim CEO since January, following the termination of Geir Kalhagen. Today’s meeting starts at 10 am at the Port offices, which are located at the base of the Lewis and Clark Bridge; the meeting is open to the public.
