Staff met with Quinn & Hary to coordinate ongoing social media support and the development of collateral materials. We also met with Dealy Mahler Strategies to develop strategic communications supporting the roll-out of our maritime strategy in February 2018.


CT Pilot Commission – DEC 12

The CPA continue to staff the CT Pilot Commission pursuant to our Enabling legislation. This month, the Commission approved rate increases for pilotage by CT pilots. They are requesting that the CPA amend its written procedures to enact this rate increase (agenda item 12). The commission also has submitted a proposal to request a change to CT general statutes to limit the number of vessels subject to compulsory pilotage in CT waters. Since the CPA did not include any legislative changes in its annual report, this would require us to amend our annual report (agenda item 10).


Vehicle replacement

CPA has been utilizing a DECD vehicle that needs to be turned into DAS for replacement. Staff are exploring options for a CPA vehicle.
