O'Hollaren choice for permanent Port boss

February 24th, 2014 - 3:47pm

(Port Angeles) – Port of Port Angeles commissioners take up a draft contract today to remove “interim” from the the agency's executive director title.

Ken O'Hollaren has been tabbed to continue permanent in the post. He's been the interim executive director since last July. Before that O'Hollaren was the Port of Longview's executive director for nearly a quarter century.

Under the draft proposal, O'Hollaren would earn a base salary of 145-thousand dollars a year in Port Angeles.

Port commissioners today also get the early results of a state audit of port operations. The audit was prompted by citizen concerns over the June 24th resignation of former Executive Director Jeff Robb.

Mike Riley, state auditor in charge, will present the results of the accountability and financial review. But, state Auditor spokesman Thomas Shapley says the report is not complete, and there could be some minor changes. Robb has been working for the Port since his resignation, with a new title of Director of Environmental Affairs, at the same salary he earned as Executive Director.
