Angoon Wins FERC Drawing, Wrangell Reacts

WRANGELL T the City of Angoon will be first in line to have their application for a preliminary permit to study and develop hydro power at Ruth Lake reviewed by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The decision to give first priority to Angoon over Wrangell and Petersburg came down to a random drawing after the communities electronically filed their applications at the same time. Petersburg will be second, followed by Wrangell. According to FERC, the situation was unprecedented. KSTK's Tony Gorman has more on Wrangell's reactions to the results.
