Ordinance granting school district additional funding okayed by Assembly

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Juneau Assembly unanimously approved several ordinances during its regular meeting Monday night.

    Due to a decrease in student enrollment, the Juneau School District is eligible to receive more funding.

    The Assembly moved to add an additional $56,000 to the school district's budget, along with the extra $245,000 they will receive from the state, for a total of over $300,000.

    Money provided by a grant from the Department of Transportation was moved to a project fund for a Valley transit center across the road from Mendenhall Mall.

    An ordinance that would buy an additional building for Bartlett Regional Hospital was also passed.   The funds for this purchase are being provided for by the hospital's fund balance.

    The Assembly also accepted the Planning Commission's renewed recommendation for the Calhoun Avenue reconstruction project and referred it to the Public Works and Facilities Committee.    Its initial recommendation which called for scrapping the project as proposed and conducting a study first was rejected by the Assembly.  The Assembly at that time also directed that making the avenue one way be taken off the table.
