Tanker Plan Renewal Discussed at PWS RCAC Meeting


The meeting is being held remotely on Zoom. We have a link below.

The Prince William Sound Regional Citizens Advisory Council started its latest board meeting Thursday in cyberspace. According to RCAC President Robert Archibald, who is also Homer’s representative on the board, the meetings are all online. Archibald spoke with KBBI’s Jay Barrett last night after a full first day. The meeting continues Friday.


Both the Prince William Sound and the Cook Inlet regional citizen advisory councils were created by congress in response to the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill to give Alaskans in the affected areas some say in oil spill prevention and safety.

Jay Barrett, KBBI's new News Director should be a familiar voice to our listeners. He's been contributing to Kenai Peninsula news for the last three years out of KDLL Kenai, and was the voice of The Alaska Fisheries Report from KMXT for 12 years. Jay worked for KBBI about 20 years ago as the Central Peninsula Reporter at KDLL.
