The Ketchikan City Council meets Monday in a meeting that was rescheduled due to the July Fourth holiday.
The council will talk about continued planning and permitting to remove the rocky pinnacle in the Tongass Narrows near Berth 2 downtown. The pinnacle is a navigation hazard for larger ships.
According to a memo from Port and Harbors Director Steve Corporon, the consultants working on the project are still waiting for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to sign off on the permit. Corporon writes that the city should be ready to issue a request for bids in late July or early August.
The council also will discuss whether to fund an effort to establish a new community flag for Ketchikan. The Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assembly last week rejected a motion to jointly fund such an effort.
In other matters, the council will consider a first reading of an ordinance that would regulate publicly available “micromobility devices” such as e-scooters. The ordinance would make it illegal for a device provider to allow such devices to be used or abandoned on a public street, sidewalk, park or any public property within city limits.
Monday’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.
