The Bellingham Port Commission will meet for what they call a "Special" meeting tomorrow to discuss the 2013 port budget. In addition to being held with only two days notice, the meeting will not be held at the usual port hearing room but at an obscure location: the Fairhaven Park pavilion building. It's the little one-room meeting shack in the southside Bellingham park at 107 Chuckanut Drive.
The meeting notice is dated June 26 but was only noticed today. Apparently - to slide into a comfortable cynical perspective - the commission had no advance notice they would be working on their 2013 budget during 2012. It surely is not because they do not want the public to attend and listen.
Thursday, June 28, 8:30 a.m until 3:30 p.m.
Fairhaven Park Pavilion, 107 Chuckanut Drive
Apparently, there will be a presentation - followed by discussion. We expect to ask for a copy plus an audio of the full meeting and post them both here on NWCitizen. But nothing beats being there to watch. Unfortunately, we are all citizen journalists who have to work. Anyone available to report on this?
