Who should be allowed to contact Wrangell’s municipal attorney?

That’s one of the questions before the borough assembly at its meeting this week.

Officials began looking at the issue after hearing questions about whether the mayor should be allowed to contact the attorney directly. Borough attorney Bob Blasco of Juneau does the job on contract with the municipality.

The proposal before the assembly clarifies that the mayor, borough manager and borough clerk are authorized to make direct requests. It also says the assembly’s majority can consult the attorney regarding matters outside the scope of normal business.

Another item before the assembly is a request by Sea Level Seafoods to expand its tidelands lease. The plan has already been approved by Wrangell’s Port Commission, as well as the Planning and Zoning Commission.

The assembly will also vote on the Wrangell School District’s budget for the next school year. The total is $6.5 million.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday in assembly chambers at City Hall. It will be broadcast live over KSTK-FM and is also available via the live feed on this website.
