SBCFSA seeks to fill two seats, lands $50,000 for CERR project


The Seward Bear Creek Flood Service Area Board of Directors is looking to fill two key spots in the next few weeks.

According to a memo provided to the Seward City Council on June 26 by SBCFSA Service Area Coordinator Stephanie Presley, the SBCFSA has a pair of vacancies.

Recently, the board had a second seat open when longtime SBCFSA Chairman Bill Williamson stepped down. Williamson had served on the board for more than a decade. Randy Stauffer has replaced Williamson and is serving as Acting Chairman.

“His service to our community has been greatly appreciated and his leadership will be missed,” Presley wrote in the memo.

With Williamson’s retirement, the Seward Bear Creek Flood Service Area board now has seats D and F open.

Individuals interested in serving on the SBCFSA board can submit their applications to the Kenai Peninsula Borough annex office in the Sea View Plaza. Selected individuals will serve until October when new elections will be held.

In other business, the SBCFSA announced it had acquired a $50,000 grant for the City of Seward from the Kenai Peninsula Borough to help pay for the Coastal Erosion Rip Rap project that was completed in 2016 by Hamilton Construction. The project helped the City of Seward protect more than 400 feet of shoreline of the waterfront walkway, the Branson Pavilion and Community Skate Park.

Presley also reported that SBCFSA had been working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to complete a Section 205 Flood Risk Management project at the top of Salmon Creek. The project team, she noted, had finalized design specifications and drawings for a 1,675-foot-long armored revetment to replace the gravel embankment.
