SEED project flying on auto-pilot for now

For the time being, the Port of Bremerton’s Sustainable Energy and Economic Development (SEED) project will coast just fine without a consultant at the helm, according to Chief Executive Officer Ken Attebery.

“Chief Operating Officer Tim Thomson and I have become familiar enough with the (pending grants and contracts) to take them to conclusion,” Attebery said this

week, after confirming he released SEED Director Tim Botkin from his contract Feb. 29 for a “host of reasons.”

Asked whether the port will replace Botkin with another consultant for the project, Attebery said that is a decision for a “future thought process.”

In the meantime, Attebery said he

and Thomson were now moving for-ward to complete “all the elements of the pause process,” which he expected would take the next 60 days or so to complete.

“We have some I’s to dot and some T’s to cross that will enable the (grant applications and other requests) to continue in good faith,” he said, adding that port staff is “anticipating a positive outcome” from a third-party review.
