Alaska Railroad to post board meetings, leases and other legal notices online
Web site notices offer around-the-clock access to public
Anchorage, AK - The Alaska Railroad Corporation's (ARRC) public notice of its board of directors' meetings and land disposals (including leases and material sales) is migrating to the corporation's web site - www.AlaskaRailroad.com/corporate. The change is effective immediately. A new rule change approved by the Board of Directors in May 2010 means most ARRC legal advertising in newspapers will be replaced with online notices that are available to the public around the clock.
As Internet access and use continue to rise, online notice is viewed as a preferred forum for reaching the public. (For example, Municipality of Anchorage officials note that 85% of the city's households have a computer and Internet access.)
The railroad expects to save thousands of dollars each year by advertising board meetings, land leases, gravel sales and similar activities on the railroad's web site.
