Port of Beaumont Board of Commissioners
by Garrett Bryce
Monday, April 28, 2014

The Port of Beaumont Board of Commissioners today voted unanimously to approve a change order to a contract for the Orange County Automation Project with Trans-Global Solutions, Inc.

The change order will deduct $108,014, bringing the total for the contract down from $569,760 to $461,745. According to Port Director Chris Fisher, the change order was due to a reduction in the amount of automated radio remote-control switches, while adding some labor costs. Listen (3:06)

“That closed that project out,” Fisher said.

The board voted to approve the purchase of a residential property at 1660 Carroll Street for total of $24,000 plus closing costs. The property is one along the south side of the port that are being purchased as they become available.

The board voted to authorize emergency repairs to Docks No. 2 and No. 3, and to remove a 60-ton gantry crane located at Dock No. 2. The crane will be sold as surplus equipment.

Fisher said that Dock No. 4 had suffered failures, and the project was to separate Dock No. 2 from the other docks to prevent further damage.

“Docks 2, 3 and 4 are kind of continuous dock structure, so we had no longer used docks 2, 3 and 4 for cargo usage,” Fisher said. “We did have an additional failure on Dock No. 3”

He said Dock No. 2 had not failures currently, and that the crane on that dock had no commercial use for the port.

All items were approved. All votes were unanimous with all members present. Agenda
