Unalaska voters approve dock

Posted: Thursday, October 03, 2002

UNALASKA (AP) -- An advisory measure to build a new boat harbor passed muster with Unalaska voters.

The measure was approved by a vote 320 to 147.

City officials have pushed for the new dock, saying it was needed to address a shortage of local dock space. They hope it will help develop a local, small boat fleet.

Unalaska is the home base for the Bering Sea fishing fleet, but most of the fishermen are non-residents.

The proposed dock would go on a peninsula known as Little South America. Opponents would rather see a different site developed or see existing dock space expanded.
