Survey aims to gauge effects of mandates

The governor recently issued mandates that shuttered entertainment venues, bars, dine-in services.

The Kenai Peninsula Economic Development District is hoping to gauge the economic impact of Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s recently issued health mandate that shuttered bingo halls, gyms, bars, movie theaters, bowling alleys and dine-in service at restaurants and cafes across the state.

The district launched a peninsula-wide economic survey that closes at midnight, Friday, March 27. The data derived from the survey will be used to identify needs in the borough and will be shared with the state and federal government.

The survey can be found online or by emailing tim@kpedd.org.

Questions about the survey can be directed to the Kenai Peninsula Economic Development District at 907-242-9709.
