PETERSBURG-AK Petersburg Power and Light will go back to the drawing board for its new diesel generator. The City Council last night agreed to re-evaluate the project and reject the contractors bids, which came in substantially higher than expected.
Also Monday, the Mayor and councilors finalized a rent increase at the new wing of Mountain View Manor. They also approved extra lobbying efforts for harbor improvement funding and they discussed pollution insurance requirements for city lease holders.
Matt Lichtenstein has a summary of these issues and other business from the City Council’s first meeting of 2011.
