KETCHIKAN - Borough officials approved just one project with money collected from a cruise ship commercial passenger fund, leaving others on the table for a January meeting.
The only project approved so far was a $150,000 appropriation for the Newtown commercial property owners for Water Street improvements.
This means the Ketchikan-Gateway Borough Assembly will hold a special meeting to discuss various project requests.
Some of them include:
$500,000 for the First City Players performing arts center;
$145,500 to Ketchikan Public Art Works for public art;
$100,000 for the Southern Southeast Emergency Response Training Center;
$27,866 for the Ketchikan International Airport ferry operating costs.
