Following the conclusion of the Nome City Council’s work session on the fiscal year ‘19 budgets, the Council is scheduled to deliberate tonight on their only piece of unfinished business.

During Monday night’s regular meeting, the Council could authorize the disposal of municipal property by lease to Jessica and Howard Farley, Jr., for about $150 per week.

Other business on the agenda includes a resolution to support justice for Alaska Native victims of sexual assault and other violent crimes. This measure was written in response to last week’s work session, where a group of Nome citizens voiced their concerns about what they say is systemic discrimination against Alaska Natives.

According to a letter addressed to the City Council included in this week’s packet, the City of Nome is now certified under the National Historic Preservation Act and is a partner in the Federal Preservation Program.

Tonight’s regular meeting begins at 7pm after the conclusion of a City Council work session in City Hall.
