The 30 year promise, by whom?

I keep reading the vague references by the bridge advocates to a "promise" made for the bridge to Gravina 30 years ago.

So it begs the question in case anyone knows:

Exactly what promise was made and by whom about the bridge to Gravina? What financial and public authority did they have to make such a promise?

Exactly when did the citizens of Ketchikan have the opportunity to prioritize spending on the bridge ahead of funding for other public needs, after being fully informed of the financial consequences?

The people of Ketchikan have a right to know.
