The Seaport Advisory Council is continuing to work with the cities, towns, local law enforcement and our state partners in the maritime community; to develop and strengthen their operations and programs. Concurrently, the council continues to administer the PSGP draw downs to assure that the funding is completed in a timely and efficient manner. As always, the council is willing to help with and support our local and regional partners in developing applications to federal and other agencies for the purpose of port security and safety.
