Port 委员会 meetings are scheduled once per month, typically on the first Wednesday of the month in the 市议会 Chambers at the West Sacramento Civic Center, 西国会大道1110号. The meeting schedule is determined at the beginning of the year in coordination with the 市议会 meeting schedule. Some meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month in accordance with the 市议会 calendar (港口委员会日历在此). If there are no items which require policy direction or board approval in any given month, the Port 委员会 meeting for that month will be cancelled.
Big thank you to volunteers and City staff for cleaning up around the 西萨克拉门托港! 2月16日星期四th, the Port organized a volunteer clean-up with the boat clubs and City Parks Department in response to complaints regarding excess debris following recent storms.
40个志愿者, 其中包括河城赛艇的成员, 华盛顿舷外船俱乐部, and 华盛顿湖帆船俱乐部 spent the morning gathering trash and debris along the trail adjacent to the Port. More than 20 bags of trash were collected and later hauled off by City Parks Department.
This is the first of a more consistent effort being organized by the Port, City Parks, and boat clubs to help maintain trails along Port property.
The Sacramento-Yolo Port District was formed under the California Harbors and Navigation Code Section 6800 et seq. in 1947 to operate the Port of Sacramento (name changed to 西萨克拉门托港 in 2008), a deep-water port which opened for commerce in 1963. The Port is located 79 nautical miles from San Francisco with direct access to Suisun Bay provided via the 40-mile Deep Water Ship Channel, which is maintained at a depth of 30 feet by the United States Army Corps of Engineers. 纵观其历史, 这个港口为农业海洋之神登录入口, 自然资源, and construction sectors in Northern California.
Today, the Port’s primary cargos are rice (exports) and cement (imports). The Port’s primary cargo facility is the North Terminal located at 2895 Industrial Boulevard in West Sacramento; the larger maritime complex includes two private terminals on the ship channel: Cemex (cement imports) and Yara (fertilizer imports). In 2006, the 西萨克拉门托市 assumed management responsibility for the Port and in 2013 the Port 委员会 adopted a landlord operating model. 截至2013年7月1日， SSA海洋 leases and operates the Port's North Terminal maritime facilities. The Port manages several other non-maritime leases and owns over 600 acres of vacant, 西萨克拉门托的可开发房产. The Port collaborates with the 西萨克拉门托市 on development projects which support mutual economic development goals.
The Port is governed by a five member Port 委员会. 每个条例, the West Sacramento 市议会 appoints four commissioners, which members may be members of the 市议会 but shall be residents of the 西萨克拉门托市. One commissioner shall be appointed by the Board of Supervisors of Yolo County, which member may be a member of the Board of Supervisors but shall be a resident of the 西萨克拉门托市.
The Port 委员会 appoints the Port’s management staff and approves the Port’s budget as part of the City’s budget process. City management staff is also responsible for the administration, 会计, 以及港口的财务职能. The Port’s activities are reported as the Port Enterprise Fund in the 金融城的财务报表. Separate financial statements are not issued for the Port.
这个港口是 河城赛艇俱乐部 (RCRC), 华盛顿湖帆船俱乐部 (LWSC), 华盛顿舷外船俱乐部 offering recreational water opportunities to residents of West Sacramento, Sacramento, Davis, Woodland, Elk Grove, and beyond. RCRC and LWSC are in the process of expanding and remodeling the Boat Club and the Port looks forward to growing the recreational opportunities for residents on the water in the future.
