Port of Tacoma Commissioners scheduled two public meetings in November to consider the Port of Tacoma’s 2014 budget, business forecast, finance plan and tax levy. The first meeting included an in-depth look at business forecasts, capital building plans, the tax levy and the 2014 budget. Commissioners invited public comment at this meeting. The second and final meeting was a special public hearing to formally adopt the 2014 statutory budget, tax levy and authorization to bank excess tax levy capacity.
