The Ketchikan City Council will vote Thursday on a motion to sell about 1,500 square feet of city-owned property on Water Street.

The buyer would be K&B, LLC, which owns adjoining property. The purpose of buying the small pieces of city-owned land is to “square up” the company’s property and provide access to the waterfront promenade.

According to a memo from City Attorney Mitch Seaver, the company has proposed a purchase price of $53,843, which is about $35 per square foot. That’s the same price the company recently paid for its adjoining property, Seaver writes.

Also Thursday, the council has two executive sessions scheduled. The first is to discuss negotiations of an amendment to the city’s Berth 4 lease agreement with Ketchikan Dock Co. The amendment relates to dock modifications to accommodate larger cruise ships.

The second executive session is to discuss the annual evaluation of City Manager Karl Amylon.

Thursday’s meeting starts at 7 p.m. in city council chambers at City Hall. Public comment will be heard at the start of the meeting.
