At a meeting Thursday, the Skagway Assembly is set to review a risk assessment of the ore basin.
The report was prepared by Golder Associates, for White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad.
The railroad will present the findings to the assembly.
In a letter to Mayor Monica Carlson and the assembly, White Pass President John Finlayson says the Department of Environmental Conservation has been contacted about organizing a stakeholder meeting.
Finlayson says after that, a public information session will be planned.
The ore dock is front and center right now. It’s where the municipality is looking to renovate, to accommodate larger cruise ships in coming years.
KHNS will have further reporting on the risk assessment in coming days.
The assembly may also consider adopting two separate ordinances. One would amend the FY18 budget to account for an increase in computer support services.
The other would amend the budget to reflect several different expenditures. Those include public safety facility communications equipment and services and an increase in cost of a new garbage truck. It also includes engineering services for both the Seven Pastures flood control project, and an emergency electrical upgrade to the Garden City RV Park.
Both ordinances will have public hearings.
Also on the agenda is a discussion about the possible development of a seasonal campground to help alleviate housing issues.
And, the assembly will talk about the Garden City RV Park. It will discuss extending utilities over the Skagway River.
The meeting is Thursday at 7 p.m. in assembly chambers. You can listen live through a link on the KHNS home page.
