Everett seeks federal stimulus funds for development

August 20 - Reports in the international media suggest the Port of Everett in Washington state is seeking a major injection of federal stimulus funds to kick-start a terminal development that will boost the existing wharf to handle more heavy lift cargoes

The reports suggest that port managers are seeking USD43 million for the project. A key current shipper at the port is plane maker Boeing, which moves parts for the Boeing 777 and other jets through the port and would like to increase this business.

Local reaction to the likely injection of funds are mixed; some of the local population suggesting the improvements should be self-funded and not based on federal grant money.
