Port Authority board members put a sharper point on efforts to secure support, particularly financial, as the bottom line shrinks and development appears poised for takeoff in the coming months and years.

Port attorney Tom Gibson reported that feedback from a tax attorney indicates the donations to the Port Authority would be tax-deductible.

Gibson could not secure a written opinion due to cost, but board chairman Leonard Costin, a certified public accountant, said the information was identical to his understanding.

Costin reported he had already secured $2,200 in pledges to the Port Authority, which is trying to raise revenue to meet basic operational needs as a new budget year arrives the first of next month.
