If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then seeing the Port of Galveston’s aging infrastructure firsthand speaks volumes.

Last Thursday, Galveston City Council and Wharves Board of Trustees members took time out of their busy schedules to tour the port waterfront by boat with port staff.

Rodger Rees is port director and CEO for the Port of Galveston.

"Galveston City Council and Wharves Board of Trustees members took time out of their busy schedules to tour the port waterfront..." I would have thought that was their job.

There will be a "funding opportunity" of $500,000,000 over the next 20 years. Thank goodness. I was concerned there would only be an opportunity to fund $200,000,000 or so...this is more like it! With the Port infrastructure back in pristine condition, we will only have to worry about the crumbling streets, bridges, sidewalks and drainage systems outside the Port gates.

Luckily, these are just for taxpayer amenities and so may be overlooked without much further concern. I love happy endings.
