Borough State at odds over land

    Petersburg, Alaska (KINY) The state promised Petersburg land last year. Now they won't help them make an informed choice on what land to select.

    The Petersburg Borough Assembly requested a face to face meeting with the Alaska Department of Natural Resources so they can get proper maps to select the property the state promised them.

    Borough manager Stephen Giesbrecht helped to author a letter to DNR requesting the meeting

    Mayor Mark Jensen said he was disappointed that the DNR offered no help saying by law they don't have to supply accurate maps
    of land that is eligible to be conveyed

    No date for the meeting has been set
