stopped by the Port of Palm Beach to discuss our plans to expand our rail facility. The Congressman's visit comes just one week after the Port was awarded a $13.2 million grant. He was greeted by Board of Commissioners Chairman Wayne Richards, Port Executive Director Manuel Almira, Port staff and representatives with Tropical Shipping. The Port presented the Congressman with a customized gift made out of old rail that was in service when boxcars were loaded onto ships and exported to Cuba in the early 1900's.
