‘In the next three years, you won’t recognize the port’ Scriber takes the wheel at Port of Oswego, plans expansion and development

Port of Oswego Authority Director Bill Scriber, pictured above, said the port’s capacity for shipping and development are growing substantially on the road to becoming “a community center that supports the city, the county and upstate New York.”

OSWEGO — With the interim tag recently removed from his title, Port of Oswego Authority Director William Scriber says the port has made significant strides in the past year and is “moving ahead quickly” to develop the Oswego city waterfront and increase shipping and storage capacity.

Scriber was appointed interim director at the port in 2017 following the departure of former chief Zelko Kirincich. Scriber served as county Board of Elections commissioner for more than a decade before joining the port in 2009 when he was named manager of administrative services.
