Port of C-W commissioners OK 2021 budget

Port of Camas-Washougal commissioners approved the agency’s 2021budget during their virtual meeting on Nov. 18.

The Port is anticipating $4,209,449 in revenues and $4,008,255 in expenditures in 2021.

“This was such a good process,” commissioner Cassi Marshall said during the meeting. “We had so many presentations with information.”

The Port is planning to begin and/or complete several major capital projects, including renovations to Parker’s Landing Marina and construction of a 50,000-square-foot building at its industrial park and a flight planning center at Grove Field airport, in 2021.

“As with all prior year budgets, the port will prepare a budget that operates within its means by only allowing property tax revenue, that comes from the port constituents, to be used towards capital projects; leaving operating expenditures to be fully funded by operating revenues and some non-operating revenues excluding property taxes,” according to a statement on the Port’s website.
