Ferry reconsideration probably will be withdrawn

The Gravina Access project is back on the Ketchikan City Council’s agenda for a special meeting Thursday night. But, the proposed action most likely will be withdrawn.

The meeting originally was scheduled for the Council to go into executive session to discuss annual performance evaluations for the city manager and attorney.

However, Council Member Bob Sivertsen added an item to the agenda: a motion to reconsider last week’s vote to endorse a ferry option rather than one of the two bridge designs in the state’s recent Gravina access plan.

City Clerk Katy Suiter told KRBD Thursday afternoon that Sivertsen has indicated he plans to withdraw his motion to reconsider, in light of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assembly’s vote on Monday.

The Assembly also voted to endorse that same ferry option.
