It’s budget season in Sitka. On Thursday night (5-1-14) the Sitka Assembly held a work session to hash out the proposed 2015 budget drawn up by city staff. KCAW’s Rachel Waldholz was there, and she spoke with Robert Woolsey about what’s coming down the pike.


The next budget work session will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 8, at Harrigan Centennial Hall; it is open to the public. The assembly will vote on the budget at its regular meeting on May 27.
