Title:
Resolution approving Port Milwaukee’s 2020 Statement of Intentions for the State’s Harbor Assistance Program

Analysis
This resolution would approve Port Milwaukee’s 2020 Statement of Intentions transmission to the WisDOT’s Harbor Assistance Program (HAP).

Body:
Whereas, Port Milwaukee generates $100 million in local economic activity and regional business revenue annually through its ongoing commercial, cruise ship, and multimodal activity in Milwaukee; and

Whereas, Port Milwaukee was responsible for the cargo movement of over 2.6 million tons in 2019, including a 24% increase in activity at the Port’s municipal docks, when compared to 2018; and

Whereas, Port Milwaukee seeks future eligibility for available grants under the WisDOT Harbor Assistance Program (HAP); and

Whereas, a requirement of potential HAP grant eligibility is the annual submission of a Three-Year Statement of Intentions by Port Milwaukee to WisDOT by April 1st each year; and

Whereas, the 2020 Statement of Intentions is reflective of several potential projects envisioned by Port Milwaukee to address its ongoing infrastructure needs and asset renewal objectives from 2020 - 2022; and

Whereas, the Board of Harbor Commissioners at their meeting of February 13, 2020 acted by a unanimous vote of the Board to approve the 2020 Statement of Intentions; now, therefore, be it
