PETERSBURG-AK It looks like the cost of living at Petersburg’s assisted-living home will be going up…a lot. The city council Monday passed the first of three readings for a measure that includes an 80 percent increase over the next year in the basic cost for self-pay residents at assisted-living. The move is aimed at reducing city subsidies to the new facility, which has been operating at a loss since it opened in the spring of 2004. The Council voted unanimously in favor of the ordinance despite concerns from some of the resident’s family members.
