Assembly backs Takatz hydro, bails on biomass

SITKA, ALASKA Sitka has taken a big step forward – and a small step backward – in securing its energy future.
The Sitka assembly last night (9-23-08) authorized the electric department to request $2-million dollars in grant funding for the study of a new hydro project at Takatz Lake, on eastern Baranof Island.
A few minutes later, they overwhelmingly declined to put up $13-thousand dollars in matching funds to study wood heat for city buildings.
