The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly will be dedicating the assembly chambers in honor of former assembly member Betty J. Glick in a ceremony before Tuesday’s assembly meeting, Jan. 8.
At the November meeting, the borough assembly changed the name of the assembly chambers to the Betty J. Glick Assembly Chambers in honor of the former assembly member who served from 1982-1995 and then again from 2002-2005.
The resolution was brought by assembly Vice President Dale Bagley, who wrote in the resolution that Glick “has selflessly served the constituents of the Kenai Peninsula Borough since her arrival to Alaska in 1961.”
In 1981, Glick was recognized in the “Who’s Who of American Women” for her dedication to the community, the resolution said.
Glick served on the Kenai City Council, and was vice mayor of Kenai, and the chair for the Kenai Peninsula Borough Planning and Zoning Commission. While serving on the borough assembly, she was elected vice president and then president.
The ceremony is at 4:45 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 8 at the borough building in Soldotna.
