Increase Property Taxes to Save Shelton Marina?

[VIDEO] The idea of increasing property taxes to save Oakland Bay Marina was suggested Saturday at the Port of Shelton’s second community forum on the future of the Shelton marina. There were also questions about the Port’s lease with the Shelton Yacht Club and its building, and the tideland under the marina which is owned by the State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and Simpson Timber Company. The Port Commissioners were urged to consider Oakland Bay Marina an asset to the community and not consider selling it.

The Port’s Executive Director, Wendy Smith, started the meeting by making the same presentation she made on April 3rd. (Video of that presentation can be found by clicking here.) Then the Port Commissioners took comments from those in attendance. (This video is of that testimony.)

Mike Byrne was the third person to speak and made the suggestion about a property tax increase. Continue reading Increase Property Taxes to Save Shelton Marina?
