Assembly to consider Centennial Museum historic designation

Posted: Sunday, December 19, 2010

The City and Borough of Juneau Assembly will consider supporting a state recommendation the Alaska State Centennial Museum be listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

If the Assembly approves the measure, which is slated for Monday's meeting, the Library Archive Museum Project will have to be relocated. Currently, the state is planning for a new facility that would include the library and archives in one building. Demolition of the existing building is included in those plans. If the building has to be demolished, the state is planning on mitigation options.

On Monday the Assembly also plans on changing the methodology for calculating compensation of emergency service volunteers, but will have no financial impact to the Capital City Fire and Rescue budget. Changes being considered are changing payments from quarterly to monthly, revising the training point system and removing the stipend from the Division Chief since the position is now salaried.

The Assembly also will consider several large-dollar grant approvals, including one for about $300,000 from the Alaska Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. That grant will largely be used for equipment, planning and training for mass casualty, mass prophylaxis and HAZMAT events.
