Borough Mayor Ward discusses Interior Economic Impact and Recovery Plan
On April 28, the Economic Development Commission released the final draft of their Interior Alaska COVID-19 Economic Impact and Recovery Plan. Borough Mayor Bryce Ward discussed four important points to the plan.
-First, Resilience through innovation
-Second, Strong local businesses
-Third, Safe and Healthy Community
-Fourth, Fully employed workforce
"The plan itself is afforded by an over arching goal and that goal is to support and strengthen the local economy," said Mayor Ward. "That is primarily achieved through identifying four specific objectives."
The Economic Development Commission is holding their next meeting on May 5, and info on the plan plan can be found at
