The New Dillingham Animal Shelter is Open

Sep 9, 2013

The new animal shelter in Dillingham, adjacent to the harbor, is now up and running. The Dillingham City Council received an update about that project and several others during last week’s Council meeting. KDLG’s Mike Mason was there and filed this report.

Tuesday is the deadline for candidates to file for the upcoming election in Dillingham. There are 2 seats up for election on the Dillingham City Council.

A major point of entry for goods and services into the western part of Bristol Bay has been closed until further notice. KDLG’s Mike Mason has the story.

Next month the City of Dillingham will open up its new animal shelter facility. It will be much more centrally located than the current animal shelter building. KDLG’s Mike Mason reports.

The city of Dillingham will no longer charge sales tax on local arts, crafts, and locally grown produce.  KDLG's Ben Matheson has the story.

The Dillingham City council will bring back a proposal to ban smoking in bars.  After a vote in May that failed to advance the ban to committee, the council Thursday night decided to put the topic on the agenda for its next meeting. 

Dillingham resident Adam Kane urged the council to take direct action and ban smoking in time for the busy summer season. Kane argued that a smoking ban would not hurt business and would have positive health benefits.

Dillingham is the largest community in the Bristol Bay region and the city’s downtown area is the most heavily trafficked part of town. The state owned roads that make up the main downtown loop are in poor shape, with drainage problems and sections of the roads are heavily potholed. As KDLG’s Mike Mason reports…the state of Alaska is planning a large project to fix the roads.
