KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) - The Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assembly has approved creation of a local marijuana advisory committee to deal impacts from the recent legalization of marijuana in the state.

Ketchikan radio station KRBD (https://is.gd/j5US4D) reports the original proposal for the local panel called for eight members.

The final vote on the issue that narrowly passed Monday settled on seven committee members to avoid tie votes.

Borough Mayor David Landis broke a tied assembly vote to pass the seven-member committee proposal.

Landis will appoint members to the panel, choosing representatives from the Borough Assembly, the Ketchikan School Board and the communities of Ketchikan and Saxman after first collecting nominations.
