Times are tight in Sitka, but the Assembly has managed to balance the budget. How? Through combination of cuts, rate hikes, and money in reserve that may not be around next year.
The Sitka Assembly was told on Tuesday that without city support, the system will likely have to cut hours -- or even a full bus line.
A Sitka man is recovering after the bus he was driving rolled into a ditch on Halibut Point Road Thursday afternoon (8-28-14). Tom Conley was driving the Southeast Senior Services’ Care-A-Van outbound along the 3300 block of HPR when he swerved to avoid construction personnel and put the van in the ditch just past Sollar’s Trailer Court at about 12:30 PM. There were no passengers in the van at the time.
March is national developmental disability awareness month. To support the cause, Kathie Snow, author of Disability is Natural, will be giving a talk in Sitka on Tues., Mar. 5.
