Port of Houston Authority OKs Bid for Barbours Cut Wharf Project (USA)

The Port Commission of the Port of Houston Authority has approved the use of the design-“bid”-build procurement method for rehabilitation of Wharves 1 and 2 at Barbours Cut Terminal and also has approved entering into a Memorandum of Agreement with the Houston Maritime Museum.

Those matters were decided during the Port Commission’s regular Dec. 13 meeting, where Port Commission Chairman Jim Edmonds announced that Port Authority CEO Alec G. Dreyer would not seek an extension of his three-year contract, which runs through September of 2012.

Alec has done a great job,” Edmonds said, noting the CEO had exceeded budget expectations this year, with strong volumes being recorded. He also commented that he expected to provide a selection of search firms for review by the Port Commission at its January meeting.

Dreyer’s announcement was made after he received a letter from the Harris County District Attorney following an investigation requested by both Edmonds and Dreyer into claims that they had not acted in full compliance with state law. The DA’s letter vindicated Dreyer, explaining that he had acted appropriately and followed the law. The DA’s office also announced that there was no wrongdoing or improper conduct by Edmonds.
