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.

Committee chairman and Borough Mayor Dave Kiffer declined to reconvene the committee. Earlier this week, the Assembly voted unanimously to maintain the list.
