Intent to use USDA Forest Service, Secure Rural Schools Title III Funding:

As required by the Secure Rural Schools Act (SRS Act) reauthorization, P.L. 115-141, signed into law on March 23, 2018, and following the initiation of Title III funds for this use by the Borough Assembly on September 17th, 2020, the following is the public announcement of the Municipality of Skagway’s intent to use Title III funds: The municipality is proposing to use Title III funds to Purchase a Polaris Utility Emergency Response Vehicle with tracks and a transportation trailer. The Emergency Rapid Response Vehicle is a Polaris with tracks allowing Emergency Response personnel to navigate both common and less commonly used terrain in a safer manner for patient rescues. In addition, this vehicle would allow access to areas that we currently cannot get to, aiding in wildland fire suppression and in some cases, residential structure protection. With the tracks specified, this Emergency Response Vehicle can be utilized year round. This advertisement will be published for the required 45-day period.

Notice of Utility Tariff Filing

The REGULATORY COMMISSION OF ALASKA (Commission) gives notice that Goat Lake Hydro, Inc. (GLH) filed TA6-521, a revenue requirement study based on a 2019 test year. With TA6-521, GLH proposes a 29.87 percent increase to its energy rate from $0.08666 to $0.11250 per kWh on a permanent basis. GLH is not requesting an interim rate change.

GLH currently calculates its energy rate using a Rate Stabilization Methodology (RSM), which defers costs to future ratepayers. With TA6-521, GLH proposes to phase out the RSM and calculate the rate using the traditional ratemaking methodology. GLH proposes to amortize the RSM asset balance over a ten-year period.

This notice may not contain all requested revisions and the Commission may approve a rate or classification which varies from that proposed. You may obtain more information about this filing by contacting Steven J. Kramer, Senior Director – Regulatory Affairs for BBL Hydro, at 901 N. Leatherleaf Loop, Suite 201, Wasilla, AK 99654; phone: (907) 864-3211.
