What is an Initiative and Referendum?

Initiative
An initiative is an ordinance or resolution that is proposed by citizens and voted on by municipal residents.

Referendum
A referendum is a repeal by the voters of an ordinance or resolution that was adopted by the governing body. The term referendum can also be used to describe the process where the council seeks the voters’ opinion on a question.

INITIATIVE AND REFERENDUM PROCESS SUMMARY:

The initiative and referendum process is a powerful tool available to municipal residents to guarantee that they have a voice in local governance by giving them a procedure to create or repeal local laws. This procedure ensures that a majority of the voters agree with the initiative or referendum by mandating an election as the final step. The results of the election are binding on the governing body for two years.

What would you do to help?

What would or could you do to help someone who has been hurt? What happens when someone you know needs medical help when time is crucial and help is at least an hour away, just for help to get here, and another hour to get to higher medical help?

Thorne Bay needs and wants everyone’s help. We are going to try again to get our EMERGENCY SERVICES (Fire and EAT responders) back on track and up and running.

We are asking one and all to PLEASE think about the health and safety of your families and friends and neighbors. Please consider being a participant in a very important part of our community. Not everyone has to be involved in the trauma and blood, you could be a driver, a support person for the response teams, help with fund raisers, there are lots of different things that you can get involved with.

The most important part of this team needs to be young, strong, energetic, responsible and medically trained people.  People who care about one another.

In the beginning you would be asked to volunteer your time, and be able to receive a small stipend for every response, but in the future when we have a decent team and a Sponsoring Physician we would be able to bill the insurance companies  for responding and that would generate enough dollars to pay the responders.

We are hosting some fund raisers so that we can offer training to those that are interested in helping our community. We offer the training free of charge with an agreement to serve at least 6 months.

There is also travel opportunities involved for those interested. Trainings in Juneau, Sitka and Anchorage.

We would like to get at least 20 individuals to join the team. The more we have the less on call time there would be if we only have a few members. Let’s work together as a community and get this program going again.
