Port Hardy Harbour Authority’s labour management contract has been awarded to Port Hardy company Seaway Ventures Ltd., who succeed Pacificus Biological Services Ltd in the role.

Staff appointed to the facilitation of Harbour Services have been in the marine industry on the North Island for over 15 years.

Gail Bridger will be continuing in her role as accounts manager with the Port Hardy Harbour Authority under Seaway Ventures Ltd. as a result of her exemplary work over the past five years.

Angela Smith of Seaway Ventures will aid the team with her skills in administration and Special Operations.

Harbour Manager and primary of Seaway Ventures Ltd. Leah Robinson said “a positive service shift will be the focus of first term operations.

“We are interested in supporting the existing users of the Harbour and meeting their needs, while looking for manners in which basic harbour services can be enhanced.  Finding fiscally-responsible solutions for harbour development are additional goals of this term. There are no current plans to change any of the existing service rates, and we remind all users that finance and rate changes are decisions made at the council and administrative level at the District of Port Hardy.

“Compared to all other marinas on the North Island, we continue to offer the lowest commercial and pleasure vessel moorage rates available, with no seasonal increases.  At the harbour office we look forward to engaging people in a constructive way, and are excited to further enhance the value that commercial, recreational and general citizens see in the District of Port Hardy marine operations,” said Robinson.

Marine facilities have been identified as an area for economic growth on the North Island, and constructive input from harbour users is appreciated.  Input and suggestions can be sent to Bridger, who can be reached by email at phfloats@cablerocket.com or letters can be deposited in the suggestions box during office hours, Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
