The Skagway Borough Assembly has a full agenda for its Thursday evening meeting.
There is a public hearing on a resolution to amend the municipality’s personnel policy to provide for paid family leave benefits. The policy would give borough employees up to 30 working days of paid leave. At a recent meeting, Assemblyman Jay Burnham proposed the municipality provide that benefit for employees.
The assembly will also discuss clarifying the port commission’s role in code. Proposed code changes include limitations on the commission, stipulating that it is solely an advisory board and does not have authority to act on behalf of the municipality.
Another code change the assembly is set to review has to do with excused absences for assembly members. If passed, assembly members would have to vote on whether a member who is absent from a meeting shall be considered excused.
The assembly will take another look at contracts related to the construction of the new public safety facility.
They will also review a distillery liquor license application from Haines residents Daniel and Christine Turner. A few months ago, the assembly did not object to a seasonal distillery license application from Skagway resident Gary Heger.
The meeting is in assembly chambers Thursday at 7 p.m.
