Senator Dunleavy sent out a follow-up email with a new date and start time for the meeting. Meeting is now scheduled for August 22 from 5pm to 7pm. The meeting was first announced to be on Aug 17 at 6pm. There will be time for public testimony, which is limited to three minutes per person.
In response to my letter regarding concerns with recent ADF&G management decisions in Upper Cook Inlet, Senator Dunleavy responded with the following,
“Thank you for contacting me with your concerns regarding the recent management decisions made by Fish and Game in the Upper Cook Inlet. Commissioner Sam Cotten will be attending next week’s Mat-Su Borough Fish and Wildlife Commission meeting where he will be explaining the management practices and answering your questions. The meeting is open to the public and I encourage you to attend to express your concerns.
The meeting will be held Thursday, August 17 at 6pm (*See update above*) at the main Borough building located at 350 E. Dahlia Ave in Palmer. Please visit the Commission’s website for more details by clicking here.”
I hope to see a good turn out of Valley sport anglers at the meeting.
