PACAB was appointed to develop <br /> energy and commerce throughout the city, and not just the harbor. She was very interested in <br /> working with the board. She listed some of PACAB's recent tasks and noted she was passionate <br /> about those things. <br /> Tim McDonald spoke about the crane issue and the more he thought about it, they were <br /> flailing the issue to death with how to fund it.But they held the syncrolift hostage across the bay by <br /> giving it to big industry.The city had zero revenue on this industry and the city lost money each year <br /> at the Seward Marine Industrial Center(SMIC). The depreciation alone would pay for the crane in <br /> the harbor. It was suspect and made the other enterprise funds suspect. <br /> APPROVAL OF AGENDA AND CONSENT AGENDA <br /> Motion (Keil/Casagranda) Approval of Agenda and Consent Agenda <br />
