Akutan Annexes Surrounding Areas

By | August 10, 2012 - 3:05 pm

The state has signed off on a proposal from the City of Akutan to annex nearby lands. The new city boundaries encompass an additional 130 square miles, including the new airport on Akun Island and the city’s geothermal project. In a press release, the Department of Commerce noted that the annexation gives the city greater authority over administration of those projects.

There were no objections to the annexation from the public. The Local Boundary Commission voted 5-0 to approve the petition.
