Recent upheavals at the Port of Cleveland have put into question major plans that would open a large swath of prime downtown lakefront for development. Earlier this month, the port's president, Adam Wasserman, abruptly quit with a $300,000 buyout the port won't discuss. Then, port officials announced the agency doesn't have the 158-million dollars it needs to start building a new containment area for dredge material. A new containment facility is essential to shipping, and to the planned move of the port from downtown. From WKSU's Cleveland studios...Kevin Niedermier takes a look at the port's mounting problems, and what some of the solutions might be.
