After a Tuesday meeting devoted entirely to Sitka Community Hospital, the Sitka Assembly tackled other business at their special meeting last night (08-30-18). That includes giving themselves the power to decide the future construction of a secondary potable water source and to decide the curator for the William Stortz Art Gallery.
To make ends meet, City Hall is consolidating or leaving unfilled 5 positions. A sixth city staffer was laid off. Critical repairs to Sitka's seaplane base -- at $170,000 -- passed just under the wire.
