The May 14, 2013 Borough Assembly meeting saw two appointments and the designation of a commemorative day.

Mayor David Jack proclaimed May 25th National Missing Children’s Day. Wrangell is encouraged to think about the nationwide issue of missing children on that day.

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.
