Port districts are authorized for the purposes of development, maintenance, operation and regulation within the district of harbor improvements, rail or motor vehicle, water or air terminal facilities or any combination of such.
There are two port districts within Yakima County, each governed by a three-member board of commissioners; each residing in a separate commissioner district. The port commissioners are designated by law, as the legislative authority of the port. Port commissioners are elected in a nonpartisan general election by all voters within that port district. The regular terms for port commissioners are six (6) years.
Port districts are municipal corporations that are regulated by state law with bonding authority and taxing powers. The commissioners are responsible for setting policy and making decisions for the district; these policies guide the development, growth and operation for all the port facilities and functions. Members of the commission are, themselves, accountable for their action under state law.
Port districts provide the opportunity for programs of industrial and economic development, to promote employment and otherwise enhance the economy of the district, county and state.
