Port of Houston: First Female Chairman Convenes Meeting

Press Release
Monday, January 21, 2013

First female Chairman, two new Port Commissioners, to  release Port Industry Capital Investment Survey at the meeting.

During the commission meeting, results of a major survey on capital and maintenance investments made by manufacturers for infrastructure along the Houston Ship Channel will also be released. Construction jobs and tax revenue are anticipated to increase significantly due to these investments.

Port Commission Chairman Janiece Longoria was appointed during a joint session of the Harris County Commissioners Court and the Houston City Council earlier this month. She has served on the Port Commission on behalf of the City of Houston since September 2002.

Joining Longoria in new positions on the Port Commission will be John D.Kennedy and Dean Corgey.

An additional item of note is that the Port Commission will evaluate competitive sealed proposals and consider awarding a construction contract for expanding and improving the Port Coordination Center. Commissioners will also consider amending Port of Houston Authority Tariff Nos. 8, 14 and 15, covering the Turning Basin Terminals, Barbours Cut Terminal and Bayport Container Terminal, effective Feb. 1, 2013.

For nearly 100 years, the Port of Houston Authority has owned/operated the public cargo-handling facilities of the Port of Houston -- the nation's largest port in terms of foreign waterborne tonnage.
