Funding for bond projects tops Assembly agenda

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Topping the agenda of Monday's regular Assembly meeting is an ordinance appropriating $376,000 for the planning and design of bond-funded capital improvement projects.

    Manager Rorie Watt's report to the Assembly says $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 antes up $45,000 for the Parks and Recreation Department to take over management of the Dimond Park Field House.

    A resolution up for action would authorize 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.

    CBJ supports using the economic development of the properties.

    The Assembly Human Resources Committee meets earlier to take up a vacancy on the Bartlett Regional Hospital Board of Directors.

    Depending on the committee's recommendation, the Assembly during the regular meeting may recess into an executive session to consider applicants who were interviewed on December 15.   Three incumbents were reappointed at that time.

    The meeting is scheduled to convene at 7 p.m. Monday with Human Resources convening at 5:30.
