Mayor aims to improve communication

 


Haines Borough Mayor Stephanie Scott said this week she’ll hold weekly meetings with the borough manager to ensure items don’t miss her attention.

The Mayor sets meeting agendas, but neither she nor assembly members were notified of an August complaint and request for assembly action from the family of heli-skier killed during a tour here in March.

The complaint instead went to the borough attorney.

Also, Scott said the borough’s new form for agenda requests states they will be referred to the manager and the Mayor. The previous forms said they would go to the Mayor or manager, Scott said.
