The Borough is considering a change to the way residents are notified about land disposal or borough property or resources. Since 2006, residents within a mile of the proposed disposal received notifications in the mail. The new regulations, if passed, would reduce the radius to residents within 600 feet. The Borough says that because of advances in electronic notification, they will be saving money and effort by reducing the amount of paper mail sent.
The Talkeetna Community Council sent a letter to the Borough seeking a compromise, recommending the notification radius be cut to 1320 feet instead of 600 feet.
