Former Sitka Mayor Marko Dapcevich will not appeal his lawsuit against the City of Sitka over the procurement of a new dock at the Gary Paxton Industrial Park. In exchange, the city has dropped its claim against Dapcevich for legal fees.
Dapcevich brought suit last spring, arguing that the city violated its own bidding procedures when it identified a contractor to build the 250-foot dock.
Ketchikan Superior Court Judge Trevor Stephens returned a judgment in favor of the city on January 9. Sitka subsequently filed a motion to collect attorney’s fees from Dapcevich.
The court dismissed that claim on February 14 “with prejudice,” meaning that Dapcevich will not pursue the case in appellate court.
