The Port Administrative Offices were closed Monday afternoon, but the port was still accepting several vessels Monday and Tuesday mornings. This morning, both the offices and port were fully operational. Now that offices are open, the board voted this afternoon on bids for the company to do primary construction on the 84 acre in-fill. This will be the site of a warehouse and new equipment for a tenant who will be moving in next summer. While officials have not yet revealed who the tenant might be, they are planning on installing specific equipment. Jonathon Daniels, the Port Director, says, “Certainly we're looking at a variety of cargos. Rolling stock and that could be vehicles, that could be a variety of rolling stock, anything that requires roll-on, roll-off activities. So that's certainly part of what we're looking at, and it would be awfully nice if we could engage in that type of operation.” Construction on the new facilities will begin this summer and an announcement as to who the new tenant is, should be coming later this year.
