Borough Clerk Kim Flores will be traveling to Tacoma, Washington in June for a professional development course.
The two open seats on the Planning and Zoning Commission were not filled. Those positions will continue to be advertised.
There was no appointment to the Economic Development Committee, either.
Assembly Member Pam McCloskey was appointed to the liaison alternate seat on the Wrangell Medical Center Board.
Assembly Member Christie Jamieson was appointed to the Code Review Committee.
There was no executive session following the meeting.
