RE: Borough Assembly Meetings
By Bobbie McCreary

I appreciate the opportunity to bring issues and acknowledgements before the Ketchikan Borough Assembly at two different times per month. Will the "4 shorter" planning sessions be as easily available for this purpose? What time of day will they be held and will the Assembly expect public comments then?

Also, when an agenda item is pulled because of extenuating circumstances, there is usually only a 2 week wait to address the item, now it will be a month?

Although not all citizens take the opportunity to address their elected officials, many do monitor the procedures as they are broadcast on TV, so my next question is...will these planning sessions be televised, will the same timing be made for agenda packets

In general, will our Assembly continue to be accessible?
