A ‘no’ vote for formation of a port district | Letters | Sept. 16

Is it true that a Port District can tax Bainbridge property owners $15 million over six years without voter approval?

Is it true that the Port District can buy property over 20 years on a contract without voter approval?

Is it true that the Port District can raise money by issuing bonds?

Could three of five port commissioners decide to assume the city’s responsibility under the Bainbridge Island Harbor Act?

Could three of five port commissioners decide to condemn property against the wishes of the property owners?

Yes, yes, yes, yes and yes.

Is this a good idea? No.
