Assembly votes against matching grant for Sitka Historic Preservation Commission

SITKA, ALASKA The announcement from the National Geographic Society listing Sitka as one of the world's top historic destinations was not enough to persuade the Sitka assembly to put up $10,000 in matching funds for the Sitka Historic Preservation Commission. Chair Peter Gorman says it took five years for the commission to win the $25,000 grant from the state, which requires a 40% match.
