Assembly to decide on Auke Lake wayside project

The City and Borough of Juneau Assembly will take action on a proposal for the Auke Lake Wayside project.

The city would enter into an agreement with the Alaska Department of Transportation for construction, maintenance and ownership of the project.

The first phase of local match contribution would be $24,800 to be appropriated from the Auke Lake Trail ADA Upgrades Capital Improvement Project. Future phases will have to be funded through a new Auke Lake Wayside Capital Improvement Project to be established next year. Total contribution toward the project by the city is estimated to be approximately $175,000.

The Assembly will also take action on resolutions correcting last month’s approval of assessments to property owners for a sanitary sewer project. The property owners were offered low-interest loans to handle the assessments with a 20-year repayment plan, however the Assembly initially approved a 10-year repayment plan. It will take action on the recommendation for the longer duration.

The Assembly also is set to take action on de-appropriating $65,795 in Alaska Department of Fish & Game grant funds previously budgeted to the Amalga Harbors Launch Ramp CIP. The project is complete and will have no further qualifying grant expenditures.
