We received the following update from Phil Andrus of the PT Moorage Tennants Union with additional comments from Bertram Levy. Note the proposed rate increases in monthly moorage rates for 2013.
Meeting with Steve Tucker and Jim Pivarnik
On September 27 I [Phil Andrus] met with Steve Tucker and Jim Pivarnik, at their request. Here’s my notes from the meeting.
Jim listed accomplished projects in the Boat Haven:
- New electrical transformers on several of the docks
- Refloating of parts of C and D docks
- Paved and striped parking lot
- New 70 ton lift dock
Projects planned for the next two years:
2013 — Repair and upgrading of the commercial dock, including some new pilings, re-floating where needed, and repair of some concrete surfaces on the floats. Cost, $450,000. The work should extend the life of these docks by 15 years.

From Bertram Levy with minor edits
The document below is from Port of Port Townsend, Deputy Director, Jim Pivarnik. It includes an introduction by Jim, followed by a chart which sets out two possible approaches to the redistribution of rates for moorage in the Boat Haven. The staff recommendation is in the columns on the right and is contingent upon a $40 “base charge”.
Please note that as Jim points out that this is only a draft. Neither formula has been adopted by the Commission. I think that a decision on rate redistribution will be made after the 2011 budget is adopted.
Also, please notify the membership that a draft budget for 2011 is being considered by the Commission. Copies are available on-line and in the office at Point Hudson. The public hearing on the budget will be at the Commission’s regular meeting on October 27. Adoption will be in November.
