PETERSBURG, AK Supporters of an effort to form a new Petersburg borough government are responding this week to opposition from Petersburg’s nearest neighbor. The small city of Kupreanof, across the Wrangell Narrows from Petersburg, passed a resolution last month asking Petersburg to redraw the lines and exclude the community of about 25 people. The opposition echoes that of some other residents outside city limits, but the Kupreanof resolution is not sitting well with some elected officials in Petersburg.
