Today Governor Mike Dunleavy joined state, federal, and community leaders in Kenai to commemorate the signing of Kenai Bluff Stabilization Partnership Agreement.
The agreement between the City of Kenai and the U.S. Department of the Army will allow the Kenai Bluff Stabilization project to move forward. The Alaska Legislature appropriated, and Governor Dunleavy approved, $6.5 million for the project and the state has provided another $3.2 million in grants to the City of Kenai. In total, the project is expected to cost approximately $41.6 million.
“The signing of this agreement has been decades in the making. I commend our congressional delegation, state legislators, local elected leaders and many Alaskan residents on the Kenai who have been persistent in their pursuit of this project for so many years,” said Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy.
