Leitch said a wash-down
area had been added.
“I didn’t put that in there,”
he said. “Those things were
in there. This is ridiculous.”
In addition, it appeared
Leitch had subleased part of
the property to a food-de-
livery company, which had
trucks parked in a fenced-off
portion. According to Leitch’s
lease, any subleases must be
approved by the city.
Finally, Leitch had failed to
pay $711.61 in personal prop-
erty tax for 2020. Business
owners in Oregon pay taxes
on any equipment used to
produce an income, such as
smokers, display cases, com-
puters and more.
James Fowler, who wants to
buy Leitch’s business, lashed
out at commissioners upon
hearing they’d rejected the
transfer until lease violations
are fixed. He accused some
commissioners of violating
laws by having a personal in-
terest in the property. When
pressed by Mayor Henry Bal-
ensifer, Fowler still wouldn’t
“A city commissioner told
me to my face not to go into
business with Paul Leitch,”
In a report given to city
commissioners last week,
Fowler talked about his busi-
ness plans. His first priority
is to continue to serve sport-
and commercial-fishing cus-
tomers while attracting new
clients during the current
salmon season. Next, “the

dump,” he wrote. “We will
look to evict derelict items as
soon as possible.”
Finally, he wants to work
with the city on an overall vi-
sion for the marina “that will
make us the crown jewel port
on the Oregon Coast. The po-
tential is there. A strong pri-
vate bait shop/fish process-
ing/tourist business at the
marina is vital to creating a
marine environment that can
attract visitors year-round.”
In a report to the commis-
sion last week, Engbretson
wrote that Fowler had passed
a criminal and financial back-
ground check and, at that
point, there was “no apparent
reason to withhold the trans-

inspection. Despite Leitch’s
claim at the meeting that “We
jumped through all the hoops
with flying colors with the
inspectors today,” the viola-
tions were substantial, Eng-
Commissioners met in closed
session with their attorney.
When they returned to open
session, commissioners voted
to require all lease and code vi-
olations be cured and all back
taxes paid before they’d ap-
prove a lease transfer.
Leitch purchased the build-
ing and lease in April 2010
