The project has been a long time coming, said Port Commissioner Tom Coultas, noting that the members of the community and the port are excited and ready see it put into action.
"We had very few people from the public in attendance," he said of Wednesday's meeting."But I think the plan has been pretty well received."
Though turnout was low for the session, community members still have 30 days in which to comment on the plan the port has put together.DeBoer and Coultas are encouraging residents to voice their opinions on the project, as the final product will represent not only the port but Kingston as well.

"A good cross section of the public was on the committee who created this plan," Coultas said.

Commissioners Marc Bissonnette and Tom Coultas have been traveling, so organizing a meeting between the three commissioners has been challenging.

Coultas has made his frustration with the direction of the project clear in the last few weeks. He believes the port should survey all 3,000-some property owners within the port district to determine whether the support the use of port reserves to support the ferry. He drafted a proposed questionnaire but his fellow commissioners didn't approve the idea.
Coultas said he believes the voice of property owners has been drowned out by SoundRunner supporters.
"I don't want the loud minority to supersede the silent majority," Coultas told the Herald last week.
...
Coultas said the port created the reserves by investing taxpayer money. Taxpayers should be consulted before reserves are spent on such a large project, he said.
The port spent a little more than $70,000 on SoundRunner in 2010 to pay the salary of the program manager and other administrative expenses. Coultas said that was the amount commissioners committed to spending before the service was launched, as evidenced by minutes of a Nov. 26, 2009 port meeting. In the same meeting, Coultas warned that ridership numbers looked too low and said he was worried the port wouldn't be able to find enough operating money to keep the ferry afloat.

Commissioner Tom Coultas has been critical of the project and recently called for the port to survey all property owners in the district before relaunching the ferry.
Coultas voted for restarting SoundRunner on Thursday, after being assured service would be held to revenue goals.
"The port can't afford to subsidize the service on an ongoing basis," Coultas said.

Commissioner Tom Coultas is pushing for the port to survey the roughly 3,000 property owners in the port's district to gauge their opinion on subsidizing SoundRunner. While property taxes are a relatively small portion of the port's revenue, Coultas said the port built its savings by investing taxpayer money. Taxpayers in the district should have a say in how the savings are spent, he said.
"I don't want the loud minority to supersede the silent majority," he said.
It's unclear when the commission will make its decision. DeBoer said the commissioners will discuss whether to relaunch SoundRunner by e-mail through the port's attorney, because both Bissonnette and Coultas are traveling in the next week.
