Wharves Board approves consulting contract

Posted: Thursday, January 24, 2013 12:06 am | Updated: 7:58 am, Tue Apr 23, 2013.

GALVESTON — In a move some officials say is likely the last chance to attract any significant outside investment to the public docks, the Wharves Board of Trustees on Wednesday voted unanimously to pay a consulting firm $300,000 to help find customers and money to redevelop the western half of the Port of Galveston.

The wharves board, which governs the port, voted 6-0 to enter into a professional services agreement with Laredo-based Phoenix Port Partners. The firm’s duties will include finding a developer to fill slips at piers 36 through 41, deepen the nearby channel and develop the area for cargo operations. It also would be responsible for securing terminal operators and financing for the project.
