PETERSBURG-AK Federal officials will not reconsider their decision to give Angoon an exclusive permit for hydro-power exploration at a mountaintop lake near Petersburg. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission last week denied Petersburg’s request for a rehearing of the issue. Petersburg, Wrangell, Angoon, and a private company had all applied for the three-year permit. It basically puts Angoon first in line to apply for a construction license at Ruth Lake in Thomas Bay.
