The City Council has hired an architect for Unalaska's library expansion.

On Tuesday, councilors awarded a $163,451 contract to ECI Hyer Inc. of Anchorage — the same firm that drafted preliminary concept designs for the project last year.

The resolution passed unanimously after testimony from Director Roger Blakeley of the Department of Parks, Culture, and Recreation. He said the selection committee received six bids.
