Port dredge app submitted

One piece of critical information missing from that discussion is a cost estimate of the dredge project, taking into account the larger volume of material and need for additional spoil sites.

The initial estimate of $25 million is now considered low.

“We have come up with some options for the problems we have encountered,” said Port Authority chairman Leonard Costin. “We’re so close to things happening, we really are.”


The Port Authority is working with businesses along Industrial Road to potentially provide long-desired signage for the businesses on the old Arizona Chemical property and badly-needed income for the Port Authority.

The proposal from Toye Roberts of American Mini-Storage would be to construct a sign on the Port Authority-owned Arizona Chemical site with space on the sign for up to 30 businesses to advertise.

Roberts said he would have the sign built and would loan the Port Authority the $6,000 cost of constructing the sign for three years with minor interest.
