There’s a saying that you shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
Evidently, that doesn’t apply to free buildings.
On Tuesday morning, the Legislative Council voted 4-7 against accepting a free building from the Juneau Community Foundation. The council is the meta branch of the Alaska Legislature, dealing with things like legislative offices and the Capitol.
Earlier this year, the Juneau Community Foundation’s Juneau Capitol Fund purchased 524 Main St., a house across Main Street from the Capitol.
