I would like to offer a major thank you to all of those involved in the organization, planning and mobilization of the scrap metal and junk car roundup that was recently completed. I would like to thank Mayor Scott, the borough assembly, Darsie Culbeck, the management and employees of Channel Construction of Juneau, the various local contractors, and the public at large who contributed to the successful metal drive. The removal of some of the perennial junk piles from around the borough is nothing short of amazing. The employees of Channel Construction were exceptionally professional, friendly, and efficient, and it was a pleasure to have them here in Haines, loading and hauling many tons of scrap metal, junk cars and worn out tires. Again major thanks to all who were involved in an amazingly successful project!
