Ordinance 2013-11(BC) An Ordinance Appropriating to the Manager the Sum of $19,042 as Partial Funding for the Alaska Juneau Gold Mine Power Tower Stabilization Project. Grant Funding Provided by the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, Office of History and Archaeology.

MANAGER'S REPORT:

This ordinance would appropriate $19,042.00 to the Alaska Juneau Gold Mine Power Tower stabilization project.    

Two historic power structures located in Last Chance Basin are leaning and need foundation repairs to assure they do not fall over. One of the two towers supplies power to the Last Chance Mining Museum. CBJ was awarded a matching grant from the Alaska Office of History and Archaeology to perform the work. The required 40% match would be provided through in-kind services of volunteers of the Gastineau Channel Historical Society. The work would begin in the summer of 2014 and be completed by fall of 2015.   

The Historic Resources Advisory Committee reviewed the project and recommended applying for the grant.

RECOMMENDATION:

The Manager recommends this ordinance be adopted.
