KETCHIKAN (AP) -- Up to $40,000 in public money could be spent on campaigns for and against consolidation of the Ketchikan city and borough governments.

The Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assembly on Wednesday approved spending $15,000 to oppose the consolidation.

The city of Ketchikan earlier this year approved a $25,000 campaign to support consolidation.

A third organization, the three-member Committee to Oppose Consolidation, also has sponsored advertisements against joining the two governments

Voters will decide the issue in a mail-in vote that concludes July 17.
