Well, all hell appears to be breaking loose at the Port of Coos Bay as all the deals concocted appear to be falling apart. Between the railroad embargo, the integrated LNG slip dock ballast issue and the lack of any firm deals between Maersk, or Jordan Cove or anyone else, it is hard to understand how the Port operates at all. They did approve a 5% increase in docking fees at the Marina.

May take me a few days to absorb everything plus the information packets supplied to the commissioners are not readily available to the public. How the public is expected to contribute to decisions investing their tax dollars is hard to understand without adequate time to review paperwork and assess the merits of data presented. Nevertheless, several of us will dig in and see if we can make sense of the $1M already spent on dredging for a slip dock that has now been put on hold.
