December 8, 2021 at Noon

Lewiston City Library – 411 D Street Lewiston, Idaho




The Port of Lewiston Commissioners will hold a public Hearing on Wednesday, December 8, 2021 at noon.  The purpose of the hearing is to receive public comments regarding the Port issuing a new Public Tariff titled “Port of Lewiston Terminal Tariff No. 004”.  The new tariff becomes effective as of January 1, 2022 (subject to Port of Lewiston Commission approval).

Terminal Tariff No. 004 is available for review on the Port of Lewiston’s website: www.portoflewiston.com.  You may also review a copy of the tariff at the Lewiston Public Library.  Please direct questions to: David Doeringsfeld, 208-743-5531 or portdave@portoflewiston.com.


Approximately 0.68% of annual property taxes paid by a City of Lewiston resident go to the Port.

That’s usually less than $16/yr.

But, we understand, every dollar counts.

That’s why 100% of all property tax dollars are invested back into economic development efforts in the Nez Perce County.
