Despite concerns about the state’s fiscal situation, the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly on Tuesday approved the addition of a new special assistant to the mayor, a job that will focus attention to see the AK LNG project come to fruition.
The assembly voted 6 to 3 to approve a new special assistant to the mayor’s office to focus on oil, gas and mining issues. Assembly members Wayne Ogle, Kelly Wolf and Stan Welles voted no.
The three dissenting voters expressed their concern of spending for a position they questioned could have been delegated amongst present personnel.
