Barge committee for Port

  • Jul. 6, 2012 4:00 p.m.

Port Clements mayor Wally Cheer has organized a barge facility subcommittee that will be undertaking a lot of work in the next few months. “It’s going to be probably two meetings a week once we get going,” Mr. Cheer said at the July 3 council meeting. “I would imagine this winter it will get pretty hot and heavy at times.” Councillors Urs Thomas and Ian Gould offered to join Mr. Cheer on the subcommittee. The group will be exploring exactly what Port needs to do to move forward with building an industrial barge facility and cargo storage area. The village commissioned a feasibility study a couple of years ago that concluded there is definite interest in a barge facility in the Port area.
