Assembly approves bond projects along with all action items

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Juneau Assembly approved all action items before it at Monday night's meeting.

    That included an ordinance appropriating $376,000 for the planning and design of bond-funded capital improvement projects.

    Manager Rorie Watt's report to the Assembly said 175,000 is earmarked for the reconstruction of Crest Avenue.   There's $51,000 for improvements to the Eagle Valley Center.  $150,000 will go toward mechanical and electrical upgrades to the downtown and Glacier Fire Stations.

    Another appropriation ordinance anted up $45,000 for the Parks and Recreation Department to take over management of the Dimond Park Field House.

    A resolution approved by the body authorizes the manager to submit an application to the State of Alaska for the purchase of Telephone Hill properties. The proposal is in reaction to Governor Dunleavy's directive which listed the properties for divestment by the state.

    The Assembly okayed the recommendation of its Human Resources Committee by appointing Gretchen Bishop to the Juneau Commission on Sustainability.

    Following an executive session, the Assembly agreed to appoint Hal Geiger to a vacancy on the Bartlett Regional Hospital Board of Directors.  Geiger is now considering whether he will accept the appointment.

    He would replace Marshal Kendziorek who resigned with one year left on his term.
