Mayor makes recommendation on appointment to Inter-Island Ferry Authority Board
The Inter-Island Ferry Authority of Directors has not reached a decision in regard to the appointment of an individual to serve a three year term as the “at large” board member. The IFA by-laws require that the Mayor from each participating municipality, with concurrence of their respective City Council, appoint the at large director. The choice of candidates before the Mayor and Council are Tim Rooney, Wrangell City and Borough City Manager and Adelia (Deedee) Jefferys of Coffman Cove.
City of Petersburg Mayor, Al Dwyer, has recommended Tim Rooney for the position and the decision was passed unanimously.
Rooney has a Bachelor of Arts in Geography with an emphasis in Regional Planning and Communications with an emphasis in Broadcasting from Mansfield University and received his MBA from Southern Nazarene University. Rooney has worked as a planning and zoning inspector, city planner, community development director, assistant city manager and is presently Borough Manager for the City and Borough of Wrangell.
