Assembly approves recycling program, more borough news

Petersburg’s borough assembly gave final approval to an expanded recycling program this week with the third reading of a new sanitation ordinance. The assembly also got a look at the borough’s first annual audit, which gave Petersburg’s financial records a clean bill of health. In other news from this week’s regular meeting, an ordinance to retain the Parks and Recreation advisory board failed on a three-two assembly vote. Two more measures retaining the harbor and public safety boards passed their second readings. Also Monday, the assembly picked a deputy mayor and agreed to sign-on to a letter of concern to the federal government over British Columbia mining developments that could affect Alaska salmon.
