They're drafting a letter to the city to make sure that doesn't happen again.</p><p>Commission President Chris Monzel says, "Making sure there's no risk exposure on the county's part for&nbsp; what the Port's doing with the city and vice versa if we go off and do something with the county, could that hurt the city in any way. Those type of things, I think, need to be figured out in the future."</p> Mon, 25 Feb 2013 17:03:19 +0000 Tana Weingartner 9646 at http://wvxu.org
