POW borough study website launches

The Prince of Wales Island borough formation study website has launched, and will provide updates about the study’s progress.

The site, operated by Juneau-based consultants Sheinberg Associates, also provides ways for the public to ask questions and provide input.

The page now features links to the 10 questions that the Prince of Wales Island Community Advisory Committee asked Sheinberg to research, and to a summary of a late-October public meeting that kicked off the $30,000 research project.

Some questions the POW committee has about forming a borough include what responsibilities a POW borough would accept, and what effects borough formation might have on schools and tribes.

A draft version of the study is due January 15th, with a final report submitted by April 22nd.

The POW study website is at http://www.sheinbergassociates.com/prince-wales-island-borough-feasibility-study
