first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Legislative representatives on the Kenai Peninsula have penned a letter to the Alaska Board of Fisheries requesting that they rescind their decision to move the 2020 Upper Cook Inlet Finfish meeting from the Kenai-Soldotna area back to Anchorage. In March 2018, the board voted to hold the UCI area meeting on the Kenai Peninsula. The vote taken on Friday was a reversal of that decision. In a surprise vote, the Board of Fisheries voted 4-3 to relocate the Upper Cook Inlet 2020 regulatory meeting from the Kenai Peninsula back to Anchorage. Sen. Micciche: “We are not asking for a particular outcome, we are simply asking that they work with us in restoring the public’s trust in the process that is put forth.” center_img The letter was signed by Senators Micciche and Gary Stevens, as well as Representatives Gary Knopp, Ben Carpenter, and Sarah Vance. Senator Peter Micciche (R-K-Pen): “We were very disappointed by the lack of public process displayed by the Board of Fish on January 18 when they changed the location of the Kenai meeting for 2020. The entire Kenai Peninsula Delegation request that the board rescind their actions from that meeting, and move back into a schedule meeting and adhere to their own public process.” last_img
