Petersburg has traditionally appointed the Power and Light Superintendent, Joe Nelson as the voting member of Southeast Alaska Power Authority, SEAPA.
The Petersburg Borough has received one letter of interest to take the alternate position on this board, held by Ted Smith. John Jensen has applied for the spot.
Jensen has served as a member of the SEAPA Board in the past and is currently a member of the Thomas Bay Power Authority Board.
“Without any objections from the assembly,” Petersburg Borough Mayor Mark Jensen stated. “I would like to appoint Nelson as the voting member and John Jensen as the alternate on this board.”
The assembly unanimously agreed to this appointment.
