Morro Bay Harbor Board weighs alleged misuse of funds
calcoastnews.com, 28 Dec 2014 [cached]
On Thursday, Harbor Department Director Eric Endersby delivered a report to the Harbor Board on the alleged misuse of funds.
"It's been reported to State Lands, and State Lands has an investigation," Endersby
said Thursday that the Community Development Fund pertains to power plant impacts on infrastructure, sewer and water.
also said that the city's interpretation of the Community Development Fund payment is that the money does not need to go to the harbor, but he
would gladly accept it if it did.
"It would be great if I could get $500,000 for each of the last 10 years," Endersby
"I don't think it's going to happen."
In recent years, harbor facilities have degraded, and the city has delayed repairs and upgrades.
The North T Pier has broken support beams and needs significant repair in order to meet code requirements.
Basic repairs cost more than $400,000, and the city has been discussing making them for six or seven years, Endersby

"At this point, our policy is not to try to evacuate the water or kick people out of the water," says Eric Endersby, of the Morro Bay Harbor Patrol.
The harbor patrol says last year's deadly shark attack in Avila Beach has increased awareness, but people should still keep in mind the threat is still out there.
"Great white sharks in the area are more common than people think," says Endersby

The boat doesn't appear to have an owner, said Eric Endersby, the Morro Bay Harbor Patrol's chief officer.
In February 2000, one of Voyager's previous, unknown owners, brought Voyager to Morro Bay from Port San Luis.
In the ensuing years the vessel changed hands several times, Endersby
said the Harbor Patrol would like to remove some of the environmentally toxic substances on the vessel, but his
agency couldn't just start taking things away because of the liability it would assume due to laws that regulate the disposal of that type of waste.
"If we don't take legal channels it could come back to bite you," he
"It's a constant black cloud hanging over our heads," Endersby

Chief harbor patrol officer with Morro Bay's Harbor Patrol, Eric Endersby, used the same description: no-man's land.
"There's not a lot of enforcement back there," he
said."I don't want to call it a slum, but it's a little bit of a lawless land, and it attracts a little bit of a lawless element."Endersby
couldn't estimate many people are living on their boats in Windy Cove - other officials put the number at about 10 - but described the place as a "last refuge" for boat owners.Endersby, who's been with the Harbor Patrol for eight years, said at least half of the boats have been there longer than him.
Some people just like no rent, he
said, some boats are abandoned, and some people live there because they have no other place to go.
"Some of [the boats] are maintained; some of them, it's a miracle they're still there.I don't know what keeps them afloat," he
They all know they're illegal," Endersby
