Tomorrow night is our next Assembly Meeting. We have a lot to discuss and cover, now that the new assemblymen have taken their seats. Here are the regular attachments:
#1 Notice and Agenda Dec 4
#2 Manager’s Report and Others
#3 ORD 14-581 Employee Personnel Policy Manual
#4 Landfill DEC Inspection Results
#6 Governor CIP Request Letter
I don’t have a working scanner, so I can’t attach the resolutions under consideration. RES 14-226 and RES 14-227 involve adding the new assemblymen to the signatory list for the city’s bank accounts.
RES 14-228 is a resolution that we see every year “certifying” that the municipality “did suffer significant effects during the program base year from fisheries business activity that occurred within the FMA 16: Yakutat Fisheries Management Area”. Of course “significant effects” could be a good thing… Just not this year.
RES 14-229 designates the Borough owned landing craft for sale and designating the terms of sale.
ORD 14-581 is NOT being introduced this meeting. It is a draft employee handbook for city/borough employees.
The CIP (Community Improvement Project) list was submitted for the governor’s budget. The Planning and Zoning commission will be working on the legislature CIP list and submitting that to the assembly for consideration within the next month. This Governor CIP was a rush to get something submitted and only lists the harbor project. Speaking of P&Z, there should be two new names offered for the Assembly to consider for that board.

#5 INFO TLO-CBY
The Icy Bay land… I remember a couple years ago a discussion when I was in the assembly audience about a possible land swap with State of Alaska Mental Health Trust. This year, Mental Health is moving forward with another round of logging at Icy Bay West. They have contracted with Sealaska Corp to do their logging. Sealaska in turn contacted the Borough to inquire about logging the Borough-owned land at Icy Bay. This prompted me to inquire about the old land swap I remembered no details from… Mental Health owns land on both sides of the road near Glacier Bear. The idea here is to swap the remote undevelopable land the city owns in Icy Bay for the Mental Health land between town and the airport. We may not be interested in this swap, but it is good to have all the info and make an informed decision as to what benefits Yakutat the most.
Ltr DOT YAK 68386
This letter from State of AK DOT informs toe city that the state intends to resurface the runways again in the near future.
David Drumm is a member of the school board. He is proposing several potential cost saving ideas for the school board and assembly to consider. Some of these are ideas I have also supported, along with a few new ones.
Well, that is more than 100 pages of documents to read through before tomorrow night’s meeting… See you at 7pm at the school auditorium.
