Borough assembly meetings
By Bill Rotecki

Your Ketchikan Borough Assembly is considering changing its meeting schedule from the first and third Monday of the month with one two day policy session per year to meeting every third week and 4 shorter policy sessions per year.

If this were to happen my only concern is any impact on transparency or public accessibility. Please give your input on how this change might affect KGB residents or their concerns.

One easy way to contact all assembly members is to email the Borough Clerk ( and ask her to forward your letter on to all assembly members (assembly members contact info).

Thanks for your input on this topic.

There are some obvious consequences. If other meetings were purposefully scheduled on the 2nd and 4th Monday to avoid conflict, that will no longer work. Fewer meetings means longer agendas for those meetings, but a few dollars saved. Staff believes there will be a time savings for them and supports the change.
