Council regrets leaving redistricting suit
After hearing initial news reports from the redistricting lawsuit brought by Fairbanks, some of the Petersburg city council expressed regret Tuesday night, at not approving additional funds to stay in the legal fight with Fairbanks.
Councilor John Jensen commented that after hearing some of the points that were made by different attorneys, he was disappointed about not going ahead with the other $10,000 (in legal fees to continue the lawsuit).
“The dialog is still open. If there is any possibility that it would benefit us, I think the council should get back into this,” Jensen said.
