The CBJ Assembly meets tonight as Committee of the Whole.
It’ll be the last meeting chaired by Deputy Mayor Merrill Sanford, who is nearing the end of his third consecutive term on the assembly. Due to term limits, Sanford will leave the panel next week when new members are sworn in.
On the agenda for tonight’s meeting is a presentation from the Alaska Department of Transportation on the new Southeast Alaska Transportation Plan. City Engineering Director Rorie Watt will also be on hand for ongoing discussion of the AJ Mine issue. Watt will give an update on the public outreach he’s doing as part of a study of the city’s water supply. The old mine, which the city and borough partially owns, is located in Last Chance Basin, Juneau’s main source of drinking water.
