Bethel, Alaska (KINY) A task force has been formed to deal with ongoing alcohol problems in the remote Alaska community.
KYUK reported that the Bethel City council Tuesday approved a resolution that creates a task force whose sole job is to focus on alcohol-related issues.
The Alaska Alcoholic Beverage Control Board awarded a third and final package store liquor license to Bethel last year. Mayor Richard Robb introduced the task force idea as a way to mitigate some of the issues. He said he wants to get input and participation from the entire community to make the community safer.
