Todd Mitchell, Operations Manager for the Ventura Port District, gave an overview of current port dredging and capital projects. 
Todd oversees 274 acres of Harbour Village and master tenants and supervises the removal of debris and sentiment from the channel.  In his overview, he spoke to how the dredging process helps keep the channel clear and also replaces much-needed sand and habitat near Spinnaker beach.  He also works with the Naval Corps of Engineers and advocates with the district for adequate funding resources from the Federal Government to ensure projects continue.
In addition to dredging projects, he works to ensure harbor facilities continue to support one of the largest commercial fishing ports in the state.
Todd was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and is married to his wife Heather.
