Weirton Area Port Authority Board

In July 2014, the Weirton Area Port Authority Board passed Resolution #67-2013_A14-01 which expanded its size from 7 members to 11 members. This transition was approved to better support the Port's Omnibus structure with the necessary committees and oversight, to provide wider representation for the regional public (3 seats) and private (8 seats) constituents, and to bring more expertise and breadth to the Port especially in the areas of finance and  commerce.
