In the hopes of cleaning up Skagway’s harbor, the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation will meet with members of the Municipality of Skagway, the White Pass and Yukon Route railroad and the Alaska Industrial Development Export Authority in Skagway on Aug. 8.

During a July 21 meeting, assembly members agreed to have Mayor Mark Schaefer, Borough Manager Scott Hahn, Borough Attorney Bob Blasco, Dr. Chad Gubala, and Assemblywoman Angela Grieser present to represent the municipality.

“I think it’s important that it’s here. I think we want to actually, physically look at things,” Mayor Mark Schaefer said.
