WRANGELL, ALASKA The city council of Wrangell may be heading in a different direction than the Thomas Bay Power Authority, the entity which operates Tyee Lake for both Wrangell and Petersburg. The Wrangell council continues to lean towards signing a confidentiality and non-circumvention agreement with private company Cascade Creek. Meanwhile, the Thomas Bay Power Commission wants Petersburg and Wrangell to consider developing a hydropower project on their own.
