City Council Unanimous Support 2015-06-16

Mostly good news!
A standing room only crowd turned out for the City Council meeting. Commissioner Avery did an expert job presenting the Harbor Commission proposal, Patricia Newton shared an excellent PowerPoint presentation on behalf of the NMA, twenty or thirty speakers presented their thoughts, and the issue then was discussed by the Council.
In the briefest terms, City Council has voted unanimously to support the Harbor Commission proposal, including restoring transferability, with a couple of minor caveats, and one major caveat–the annual fee–which it has agreed to be set at $35/ft/yr. More report to come, but we wanted you to have a quick report, at least. Thank you all for your support!
Cut and pasted from the NMA web site:
I decided I wanted to go sailing last night rather than attend this meeting and will be watching the stream today and will call a couple of my sources and report back my findings.  Len Bose
