New New Alaska revealed a case study today on Alaskan State and Federal government’s regulatory behavior, exposing waste. The study focuses on environmental wetland assessments and the impact it makes with both federal and local projects.
The case study identifies problems with land management, inter-departmental government agency issues, and how they have an effect on both federal and taxpayers projects. The majority of the study focuses on Lot 9 A, a property on Old Seward Highway in Anchorage, Alaska. A brief synopsis of the study shows the involvement of three government agencies; the EPA, Corp. of Engineers, and the D.O.T. The document addresses the involvement of each agency, dissemination of information, and their interests. It proceeds to identify underlying issues with inter-agency cooperation and the resulting increase of burdens placed on taxpayers as a result.
In the study, Dick Towers identifies how the Alaskan government and Federal agencies work against each although sharing common interests. Ultimately it shows how the dissemination of information and conflict of interests lengthens the time required for highway improvements, project initiation, and causes additional expense and harm to the environment, community, and taxpayers. Towers, in his quest to generate more awareness of problematic government processes, has put together this study titled ‘The Making of Lot 9A.”
Towers points out that “Taxpayers largely miss and don’t understand the problems resulting from the interaction of both State and Federal agencies. Most agency interactions are between departments directly meaning that there is not a public understanding of communication made between them. Agency decisions can heavily impact taxpayers both financially and in every day life.”
Towers, in his quest to generate more awareness of dysfunctional government processes, initiated the study to share the important information with both the agencies and the public. Towers says “Much can be learned through a focused step by step analysis,audit, and study of The Making of Lot 9A.”
