    Alaska borough wants to give away expensive ferry

    http://news.yahoo.com/alaska-borough-wants-away-expensive-ferry-222717872.html

    An Alaska borough stuck with a $90,000 monthly bill for maintaining a ferry it can’t use is offering the $78 million

    vessel free to any government entity — federal, state or local — that will have it.

     

    If sold to a private entity, Sullivan said, the borough is seeking $7 million to cover the cost of paying back federal grants

     

    Borough taxpayers took title to the vessel in August and have been on the hook for monthly expenses of $8,000 to $9,000 for moorage,

    $33,000 for operation and maintenance costs, which includes keeping a crew on board, and a whopping $44,000 for insurance.
