Port Authority

A port authority operates ports and other transportation infrastructure for a special-purpose district. Whether operated directly by the government or in cooperation with government agencies, North American port authorities are public entities and are governed by a board or commission. Most port authorities are financially autonomous. Port districts may also operate shipping terminals, airports, railroads, and irrigation facilities. The port authority often owns land, dictates fees, and collects taxes.
