At a meeting this week, the Skagway Borough Assembly will determine whether a senior center bond question makes it onto the October election ballot.

The question would ask whether voters favor issuing bonds up to $7 million to fund construction of a senior center and housing facility. If approved, the municipality may levy property tax increases to pay for the project.

The assembly will also consider an ordinance that prohibits parking within 20 feet of intersections, and an ordinance regulating golf cart usage.

Up for discussion once more is the question of how to go about re-engaging in tidelands lease negotiations with White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad. At the previous meeting, White Pass President John Finlayson suggested a socioeconomic study of the railroad’s impact on Skagway.

The assembly will also discuss the future of the historic Rapuzzi House, the state ferry dock refurbishment, and the municipality’s support of the North Words Writers Symposium.

The meeting is set for Thursday at 7 p.m. in assembly chambers. A full agenda can be found at
