Port Commission Meetings

Port Commission meetings are scheduled once per month, typically on the first Wednesday of the month in the City Council Chambers at the West Sacramento Civic Center, 1110 West Capitol Avenue. The meeting schedule is determined at the beginning of the year in coordination with the City Council meeting schedule. Some meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month in accordance with the City Council calendar (Port Commission calendar HERE). If there are no items which require policy direction or board approval in any given month, the Port Commission meeting for that month will be cancelled. 


Volunteers help clean up Port Area

Big thank you to volunteers and City staff for cleaning up around the Port of West Sacramento! On Thursday February 16th, the Port organized a volunteer clean-up with the boat clubs and City Parks Department in response to complaints regarding excess debris following recent storms.

40 volunteers, which included members from River City Rowing, Washington Outboard Club, and Lake Washington Sailing Club spent the morning gathering trash and debris along the trail adjacent to the Port. More than 20 bags of trash were collected and later hauled off by City Parks Department.

About the Port

The Sacramento-Yolo Port District was formed under the California Harbors and Navigation Code Section 6800 et seq. in 1947 to operate the Port of Sacramento (name changed to Port of West Sacramento in 2008), a deep-water port which opened for commerce in 1963. The Port is located 79 nautical miles from San Francisco with direct access to Suisun Bay provided via the 40-mile Deep Water Ship Channel, which is maintained at a depth of 30 feet by the United States Army Corps of Engineers. Throughout its history, the Port has served the agricultural, natural resources, and construction sectors in Northern California.

Today, the Port’s primary cargos are rice (exports) and cement (imports). The Port’s primary cargo facility is the North Terminal located at 2895 Industrial Boulevard in West Sacramento; the larger maritime complex includes two private terminals on the ship channel: Cemex (cement imports) and Yara (fertilizer imports). In 2006, the City of West Sacramento assumed management responsibility for the Port and in 2013 the Port Commission adopted a landlord operating model. As of July 1, 2013, SSA Marine leases and operates the Port's North Terminal maritime facilities. The Port manages several other non-maritime leases and owns over 600 acres of vacant, developable property in West Sacramento. The Port collaborates with the City of West Sacramento on development projects which support mutual economic development goals.


The Port is governed by a five member Port Commission. Per statute, the West Sacramento City Council appoints four commissioners, which members may be members of the City Council but shall be residents of the City of West Sacramento. One commissioner shall be appointed by the Board of Supervisors of Yolo County, which member may be a member of the Board of Supervisors but shall be a resident of the City of West Sacramento.


The Port Commission appoints the Port’s management staff and approves the Port’s budget as part of the City’s budget process. City management staff is also responsible for the administration, accounting, and finance functions of the Port. The Port’s activities are reported as the Port Enterprise Fund in the City’s financial statements. Separate financial statements are not issued for the Port.
