SITKA, ALASKA The city of Sitka has thrown its support behind a pilot program to create a tribally-run ferry service in the northern panhandle.
Prior to its vote last night (Tue 9-9-09), the Sitka assembly had postponed action three times previously on the Short Sea pilot program while it wrestled with a basic problem: the tribal government launching the effort is Juneau’s Tlingit & Haida Central Council, which has yet to solidify an agreement with the Sitka Tribe of Alaska.
