Energy roundtable to be held in Petersburg
Robert Venable, Energy Coordinator, Southeast Conference, is interested in conducting a Stakeholders Roundtable to discuss the hydro resources in and around the Thomas Bay and southeast Alaska region that would benefit the area.
“We had some discussion about this back in November at the last Alaska Municipal League meeting in Anchorage,” Petersburg Borough Mayor Mark Jensen said. “This has materialized from that discussion.”
Venable has volunteered to facilitate this roundtable discussion and has been calling on people from the different communities across the southeast from Juneau to Ketchikan.
“There appears to be a lot of interest in this conversation,” Jensen said. “They would like to hold it here in Petersburg.”
The discussion will include two to three individuals from each of the participating cities and a tentative date has been scheduled for Feb. 6.
