If you have questions or comments for the countywide Port of Bellingham, the Commissioners would like to talk with you. In September they have scheduled four "Coffee with a Commissioner" sessions around the county so that they can hear directly from the people they represent."It is important that Whatcom County's only public port is relevant and responsive to the entire county,” said Commission President Michael McAuley, “I am looking forward to some good dialog and constructive feedback from the people we serve.”Although the Commission welcomes public comment at the beginning of their twice monthly regular meetings, they realize they can reach even more people by hosting informal coffee sessions.Several times a year, the Commissioners schedule these conversation opportunities in different parts of the county. During September, they will visit Glacier, Bellingham, Sumas and Lynden. They will have information about the upcoming Airport Master Plan, economic development efforts, environmental cleanup projects and waterfront redevelopment work in Blaine and Bellingham.Each session will be hosted by one commissioner and a staff person and will include complimentary coffee, tea, fruit and breakfast pastries.
