The Port of Tacoma Commission has scheduled two public meetings to consider the Port’s 2014 budget, business forecast, finance plan, and tax levy. The first budget meeting on Thurs., Nov. 7, will include an in-depth look at business forecasts, capital building plans, the tax levy and the 2014 budget. Commissioners will invite public comment at this meeting.
