He noticed a <br /> new automatic electrical rate from Chugach Electric Association was to be imposed in the near <br /> future. These rate increases happened from time to time, but noted the management of the city's <br /> assets could be better. McDonald did not understand the shipyard change in ownership. The sale of <br /> Seward Ship's Drydock to Vigor Alaska was transferring city assets,which should have been done <br /> publicly and not privately. He objected to the handling of the city assets when rates were going up <br /> and thought the city was doing a poor job of it. <br /> APPROVAL OF AGENDA AND CONSENT AGENDA <br /> Motion (Terry/Casagranda) Approval of Agenda and Consent Agenda <br /> Resolution 2015-058 was pulled off the consent agenda by Darling. <br /> Terry added re-scheduling the work session to discuss the possible Seward Community Health <br /> Center/Providence Expansion Project under Other New Business Items. <br /> Keil added Resolution 2015-059 to the consent agenda with no objection from council. <br />
