$10 million bond issue for Safe Boats building proposed

Readers,

Port of Bremerton commissioners tonight will take up a proposed 2012 budget for $20 million that includes a proposal to do a $10 million bond issue to modernize and enlarge the port building occupied by Safe Boats International. You’ll hear more from me soon on this.

Also, Commissioner Bill Mahan tells me that he believes Chris Case’s 1-year-old communications position is proposed to be eliminated. This is part of a broader discussion of how PR money should be spent, and if it should be spent instead, say, on a commercial real-estate representative active on the East Side.

Port CEO Cary Bozeman and incoming CEO Tim Thomson are saying they won’t talk to me this afternoon on the budget. Safe Boats CEO Scott Peterson isn’t available, either.

I’ll be filing my story late this evening at kitsapsun.com

Anyone with anything to say can call me at (360) 475-3783.

Thank you,

Rachel Pritchett
