With the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity grant dollars for the update of the port master plan expended, the Port Authority, faced with the prospect of finishing the fiscal year in September in the red led to the return of Pitts to a salary of $1 per month.

“It is important we get through the fiscal year and have some money,” Costin said. “If we continue with Tommy as director we would have a deficit. We’ve been here before, we’ll probably be back here again.

“We need him desperately. It’s obvious we can not continue after June with a director’s salary.”

Pitts agreed to return to the $1 per month he made prior to the FDEO grant.

“I understand the situation,” Pitts said. “I will continue at $1 per month.”

Nadine Lee, assistant to Pitts, will also remain onboard as a contract employee.
