Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - There are suggestions that Juneau close one of its schools.
City Manager Rorie Watt was asked about that on Action Line. "I don't think we're there yet and yet I hope we never get there."
Watt believes it is healthy to talk about the facilities and the population and what they're doing and have slow, thoughtful conversations.
The manager said the community hasbeen losing school age population and the Assembly and the School Board have a joint committee that looking at this issue. "I think its an issue that's out there and if we lose significantly more population maybe that becomes a reality, but at this point we're in the planning stage."
