Port of HR Budget Committee To Discuss Bridge Toll

The Port of Hood River’s budget committee meets to discuss the 2017-18 fiscal year Tuesday, and the question of raising the toll for the Interstate Bridge will come up again.  Port Executive Director Michael McElwee says whether the Port can generate the state and federal support to replace the bridge or has to maintain it for another 30 years, there is a need to generate the funds required for either possibility.  McElwee adds to keep the current bridge operational, the Port will need 48 million dollars in the next 15 years based on a 30-year model that the Port recently developed.  The Port budget committee meets at noon on Tuesday in the Marina Center boardroom.
