Notice of Special Election
Resolution 2019-32 postponing the Oct 1, 2019 Election
It's in our best interest to adopt a Borough fisheries business processing tax to support a wastewater system with more capacity, as well as other capital needs. The increase of processors and workers in our community has been great for local business, but it puts a lot of strain on our infrastructure. We want to encourage growth, but need to update our systems to prevent a disaster. We do not have time to waste. Please vote yes on Proposition 1!
The community sewer system is approximately 30+ years old.
* Current peak flow rate is 300% over capacity.
*This tax will only apply to large seafood companies ---the first 50,000 pounds is exempt.
| VOTE YES ON NOVEMBER 5, 2019
Bristol Bay Borough is a Rural Alaskan fishing community in South-West Alaska situated at the mouth of the Kvichak River consisting of three cities: Naknek, South Naknek and King Salmon. Our primary export is fresh Bristol Bay Salmon. To our community fishing is a way of life, and without the yearly Salmon run there would be no Bristol Bay.
Every year thousands of fishermen travel to Bristol Bay to make their go at fishing the Bay. And every year millions of pounds of fish are brought in and processed to be sold all across the world!
Do you know where your salmon came from?
