The unknown was funding that budget.

The Port Authority board has wrestled for more than a month on a community fundraising campaign.

“We have got to find a solution to keep this thing afloat for the next two to three years,” Raffield said.

He said assembling the platform on which the Port Authority can reach out in the future is to document the past, demonstrating how money has been spent on infrastructure to build the port footprint.

Officials should also reach out to state, federal, county and city elected officers.

“They all have a heckuva an interest in this,” Raffield said.

Raffield said costs have piled up on local residents while state and county officials don’t fully understand what is happening in the county.
