The port’s mission includes operating in a fiscally sound, environmentally responsible manner while ensuring quality service to its customers and full accountability to the stakeholders of the port district, which includes Edmonds and Woodway.

Port Executive Director Robert McChesney will provide an overview of port operations and a vision for the future. There will be an opportunity to ask questions following the presentation.

Note that the program on City of Edmonds finances, previously announced for the ECR’s November meeting, has been postponed at the city’s request until early 2023 due to ongoing budget discussions with city council.

  1. This will be a very important topic for the community. The Port District, smaller than the city but including Woodway has a different role in our community than the city government. Folks should learn about the Port, what it can do that cities cannot. They actually operate more like a business than a government. But they do collect taxes from those of us who own or rent property in the port district.
