The municipality takes over in Assens

Yesterday, an almost unanimous city council voted that Assens Harbor, being an autonomous port, becomes a municipal port from January 1, 2018. The port's board had requested that the harbor be organized in a new way. The port is an independent company with its own board of directors.

"It is pleasing that the City Council backs up the harbor board's desire to transfer to a municipal-driven port. Therefore, in cooperation with the municipality, we can now plan the transfer, which we expect may take effect from January 1, 2018," says Bodil Boesgaard, Chairman of Assens Harbor.

Assens mayor Søren Steen Andersen points out that a status as a municipal port provides more opportunities for activities, for example in terms of tourism, than with the case with an autonomous port that is more closely linked to business activities.

"I would like the harbor to continue to evolve as a commercial port, which focuses on port transport and development of the yard, but also provides space for activities in tourism and maritime areas," says mayor Søren Steen Andersen.

The City Council also decided that Municipal Director Finn G. Johansen will enter the Harbor Board as an observer until December 31, 2017.
