Joint Harbor Meeting Monday

The board working to develop a $5 billion container ship terminal jointly operated by South Carolina and Georgia is meeting in Charleston on Monday.

Last year, the South Carolina State Ports Authority board voted not to spend any more money on the joint port to be located on the South Carolina side of the Savannah River just downstream from Savannah, Ga.

One concern is the terminal site is now used by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as an area to dump silt from dredging the river.

South Carolina ports officials want to know when Georgia plans to release the easement given the corps. The easement release is one of the items on the agenda when the joint port board meets.
