Plan to demolish old float at north end of Aurora Harbor before Docks and Harbors Board

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Planned dredging at the north end of Aurora Harbor highlights Thursday evening's meeting of the CBJ Docks and Harbors Board of Directors.

    Port Director Carl Uchytil said the matter was initially presented to the board's Operations and CIP Committee last week.

    The recommendation calls for demolishing the old float infrastructure there to allow the Army Corps of Engineers' contractor to complete the operation unimpeded.  Uchytil said the demolition work would commence in October.  The board committee decided it deal with the removal of the infrastructure until the time it can be rebuilt.  
    A lease at the department's Auke Bay Marine Station is on the agenda.  Uchytil said the Wildlife Troopers have an interest in leasing the former Fish House building there.  So the board will be asked to provide permission to advance leasing options to the Troopers.

    Uchytil will present a powerpoint to the board in advance of the department's budget presentation to the Assembly Finance Committee on April 1.

    The Docks and Harbors Board convenes at 5 p.m. in Assembly Chambers at City Hall.
