Cove board pulls dock ballot question

SITKA, ALASKA Sitka voters will not see an advisory question regarding a multi-purpose dock on the ballot this fall.
The Sitka assembly last night (Tue 7-22-08) rejected a proposed ballot question that would have asked the voters to give the go-ahead to plan for a dock at Sawmill Cove industrial park.
In an eleventh-hour meeting on Monday, Cove board members endorsed the “no” vote in order to have more time to involve and educate the public about the project.
