What do you think should be the focus of the Port of Bellingham? Do you have questions or concerns you’d like to share with this countywide government agency? Would you like to find out more about Port projects or add your ideas to the Port’s 2013 budget planning?
The Port Commissioners would like to hear from you. In October, they are hosting “Coffee with a Commissioner” sessions so that they can talk directly with the people they serve. The sessions are being offered in a variety of locations to reach more people. Port staff will join the Commissioners at these sessions.
Everyone is welcome at these events and no RSVP is necessary. The Port will provide free coffee, tea and breakfast pastries at each of the sessions, all of which are from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
