Mayor & Council - Meet the Mayor


                                                                                           MAYOR DAVE KIFFER


As a fourth generation Ketchikan resident, I am pleased to welcome you to the City of Ketchikan's website, and I hope that it will be only the beginning of your interest in our community.

Whether you are a long-time resident, new to our community or just interested in "visiting" via the internet, I am sure that you will find a wealth of information here. If you have questions that are not immediately answered, feel free to contact me directly and I will see that you get the information you need.

In order for city government to function well it must be accessible and we hope this website is the beginning of that accessibility. Both for residents and for people outside of Ketchikan.

The City of Ketchikan website contains the latest information about City Council meetings, new ordinances, notices about construction or bids, and a great deal of information about City departments and community events. Citizens are able to send emails to the Mayor and City Council, and to obtain phone numbers and email addresses for City departments and employees.  

If you live outside Ketchikan, please use this website and its associated links to find information that will be useful for planning a trip to our community.
