                            the backs of the drivers. 
                   Commissioner Tarleton stated that data collected by the group over the past year
                  provided verification of where and when trucks were actually being parked, which in turn
                   helped identify specific trouble areas needing to have the truck parking problem
                     alleviated.

                   process to address the issues, and noted key focus areas. 
                  Also discussed were findings of the group, and recommendations regarding truck

                   facility, and that work plans and timelines are being developed. He also noted that work

                  Staff provided background on the Port's partnership with the Puget Sound Clean Air
                   Agency (as related to Item 6a), noting a long history of collaboration concerning the
                   Port's air quality. Mr. Grotheer commented that the most important areas of focus
                  include reducing truck emissions through replacement of pre-1994 trucks, reducing
                   emissions from vessels at berth through cleaner fuels, and reducing cargo handling
                   equipment emissions through retrofits and cleaner fuels. He noted that the proposed

                   currently a draft funding agreement, and noted that the final agreement will provide that
                  the funding would be consistent with both the PSCAA's diesel solutions program and the

                  Responding to Commissioner Tarleton's question about the funding source of the
                  proposed transfer of money, Mr. Grotheer stated that it would come out of the Seaport
                   operating revenues, and also clarified that the tax levy would not be used to pay for those
                   revenues. 
                  Public comment regarding Items 6a and 6b were received from the following: 
                      Mark Johnson, Washington Retail Association, who spoke in support of the clean

                          support of how the Port has worked on developing a solution. 
                       Bruce Carter, citizen. Noted disappointment that the Port is combining lease
