Officials in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough are trying to figure out what to do with their $80 million ferry.
The commuter ferry Susitna was completed earlier this year, but remains docked in Ketchikan since there are no places for it to land in either the borough or Anchorage.
The borough assembly in July learned that it’s costing taxpayers almost $67,000 a month to keep it in Ketchikan.
Borough assembly members are considering whether to sell it or just beach it, and will discuss it again at the Aug. 9 meeting.
