PORT TOWNSEND — Port of Port Townsend commissioners were presented Wednesday night with a proposed $3.89 million budget for 2003, up $300,000 from the current year.
For the first time in at least the last five years, operating revenue will outpace operating expenditures at the Port, officials said.
The changes are largely because of the Port taking over Point Hudson, the property it had leased for the last 30 years until resuming control of it in April, officials said.
Moorage fees at the Port are expected to be increased by 8 percent, while recreational vehicle parking fees will largely stay the same, except for an increase in monthly fees during winter months.
