KETCHIKAN -- Ketchikan's harbors are in line for improvements. City voters Tuesday authorized up to $5 million in bond issues for harbor projects.
The Ketchikan Daily News reports the turnout was small for the vote. Just 247 people cast ballots for the bonds and 99 opposed the measure. Another 64 questioned or absentee ballots have been collected.
Port and Harbors Director Steve Corporon says he's pleased by the support, even though the turnout was small.
He says fishermen and recreational supporters as well as people who don't get on the water recognize the economic importance of the harbor.
