Assembly to discuss harbors, zoning

The regular meeting of the borough assembly is Tuesday, October 22nd.

There are several board and committee vacancies that still need to be filled.

There is one on the Planning and Zoning Commission and one on the Economic Development Committee.

There are two each on the Cemetery Committee and the Nolan Museum/Civic Center Board.

Apryl Hutchinson, Warren Edgeley, Dawn Angerman, Jim Nelson, Linda Churchill, and Harley Johnson will receive certificates of service for their time serving on the boards.

In new business, the assembly will discuss a draft ordinance accepted by the Port Commission during its October 17th special meeting.

The ordinance is about derelict and abandoned vessels and their removal.

There were a number of changes made in the wording of the ordinance.

There is now a time specification on how long a vessel can stay in the Marine Service Center without moving.

Now, no vessel will be allowed to remain within the Wrangell Marine Service Center for longer than 24 months. If one remains idle there for longer than that, it is subject to impoundment and sale by the City.

In other new business, the assembly will discuss and possibly approve the final plat of the Neyman Replat, as requested by Arlen Neyman and approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission at its last meeting.

The assembly will also discuss and possibly approve the final plat of the Senna Subdivision. It subdivides lot 37, Block 2, into lots 37A and 37B and is owned by Arnold and Alice Bakke. That motion passed by unanimous vote in Planning and Zoning.

There is no planned executive session in this meeting.
