City denies second citizen petition to limit cruise visitors

Sitka, AlaskaFor the second time, the City of Sitka has denied a citizen’s petition to put cruise limitations out to voters in a special election this winter.

Organizer Larry Edwards received notice from the city on November 9 that a petition he sponsored with more than 40 other Sitkans was rejected.

An opinion from municipal attorney Brian Hanson said the new petition would be legally unenforceable due to provisions that were “confusing, misleading and incomplete.”
