Ketchikan Council again rejects community priority list

By October 1, 2012Southeast

The hot potato that is the 2014 community priority request list will go back to the executive committee for review. The Ketchikan City Council again rejected the list during Thursday night’s regular session.

The City Council had rejected the list when they last met – Sept. 6 – and sent it back to the Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assembly for reconsideration.  Committee chairman and Borough Mayor Dave Kiffer declined to reconvene the committee. Earlier this week, the Assembly voted unanimously to maintain the list.
