Role of Port Commission

The Port of Walla Walla Commissioners set policy, direction and approve all expenditures of the Port.  Each Commissioner serves a six-year term.  Terms are staggered.  One position is up for election every two years. While all Commissioners are elected on a county-wide basis, each must live in a specific Commissioner District within Walla Walla County.  Commissioners decide each year who will hold the offices of president, vice president and secretary.  Commissioners are responsible for appointing the Executive Director and hiring the Port Attorney.  Commissioners receive $161 per day compensation for each day spent attending meetings or performing other services on behalf of the Port.  State law limits such compensation to no more than $15,456 per year.  In addition, Port Commissioners receive a salary of $750 per month.  Port Commission meetings are open to the public and are normally held on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month.  On the 2nd Thursday of each month the meeting starts at 9:00AM, and on the 4th Thursday of each month the meeting starts at 1:00PM.  Port Commission Meetings are held at the Port Administrative office, 310 A Street, Walla Walla, Washington, unless otherwise stated in the agenda.
