The Mayor touched on the recent visit of a number of Prince Rupert representatives to the Ketchikan Fourth of July celebrations, during his wrap up to last Monday's City council meeting.
His synopsis, providing some background on the journey which included, fellow City Council members Gina Garon and Nelson Kinney, as well as representatives from Port Edward, the Port of Prince Rupert, Ridley Terminals, the RCMP and Prince Rupert's Marine Search and Rescue group.
The Mayor's report on their Ketchikan trip can be found on the City Council Video Archive for July 8th, around the one hour five minute mark.
Their website offers up some background on the Mayor's talking points to the Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce, which stressed some of the opportunities that Ketchikan industry could take advantage of through the Port.
As well as the Mayor's talking points, the Ketchikan Chamber meeting also included an information session from the Port of Prince Rupert's Maynard Angus, who provided a bit of a recent history lesson for Ketchikan Business leaders on Prince Rupert's economic struggles, which then led into an update on developments at Fairview and Ridley Terminals.
