The city gets power from G and K, Inc. and has a current bill but is in the process of releasing the payment. There was a break in time that the city administrator was on vacation and bills from G and K were received but not processed. It is advised that a city clerk position be filled to provide assistance to the city administrator. Due to funding, a full time clerk may not be feasible, but a temporary clerk should be established to provide normal office hours to the public when the administrator is out of town.
Fuel is purchased from Frosty Fuels, a subsidiary of the Aleut Corporation, which provides fuel for commercial and residential use. The city does have funds to cover fuel cost for city facilities and equipment.|
