Port of Tacoma budget available online

The Port of Tacoma announced Thursday it has posted its budget document for 2013 online.

The budget document describes all aspects of the Port’s business, from a broad operational overview and the business outlook to budget details, the Capital Improvement Program, Plan of Finance and environmental stewardship.

Commissioners considered the Port’s 2013 budget, business forecast, finance plan and tax levy at two public meetings. The first meeting, held on Nov. 8, included an in-depth look at business forecasts, capital building plans, the tax levy and the 2013 budget. Commissioners invited public comment at this meeting. The second and final meeting, held on Nov. 15, was a special public hearing to formally adopt the 2013 statutory budget, tax levy and authorization to bank excess tax levy capacity.
