Briggs resigns from Bainbridge Harbor Commission

George Briggs has resigned from his position on the Bainbridge Island Harbor Commission.

Briggs notified Harbor Commission Chairman Dave Kircher of his decision to step down from the Position 4 seat late last week.

In the email, Briggs said his work schedule was proving to be too much for him to continue as a commissioner. His resignation followed an earlier email from Kircher, who asked about Briggs' absences at recent commission meetings.

Briggs replied on Friday, Feb. 21 and explained why he had been missing at recent meetings, and added that he could no longer serve.

"I've gotten so busy in my day job here of late and have been traveling extensively so have been unable to attend. While I would love to contribute to the Island and the commission I am just not going to be able to fully commit to the commission with my current professional schedule," Briggs wrote.

"Again my apologies and I wish you all the best of luck," he concluded.

Briggs works as the vice president of field operations for Ozone International. He was appointed to the Position 4 seat by the city council in September 2013.

The commission is expected to accept Briggs' resignation at its meeting tonight.

The advisory board will meet at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25 in council chambers at city hall.

At the meeting, commissioners will also get an update on the city's dinghy policy from Deputy City Manager Morgan Smith, and also talk about the city dock with Studio Cascade, the consultant firm hired to create a design for renovations at Waterfront Park.
