Title 3 . Commerce, Community, and Economic Development
Chapter 190 . Real Property From Dissolved Municipalities
Section 290. Vacant villages

3 AAC 190.290. Vacant villages

If a village, with respect to which a village corporation has an obligation under ANCSA, sec. 14(c)(3), is vacant of bona fide residents at a time when the commissioner is obligated under this chapter to respond to a corporation's tender or to make any other decision regarding municipal trust land under this chapter, the commissioner will recognize under 3 AAC 190.110 - 3 AAC 190.150 an appropriate village entity, if any, which might exist for that village. If no such entity qualifies for recognition, the commissioner will recognize as the village entity pro tempore, a group consisting of all persons enrolled under sec. 5 of ANCSA to that village who are at least 18 years of age or who, if less than 18 years of age, are the head of a household. The commissioner will consult with and obtain the views of this group in a village meeting convened and conducted in accordance with 3 AAC 190.220 - 3 AAC 190.280 at a place in Alaska where the majority of that group resides or can conveniently assemble at their own expense. If the commissioner determines that a meeting in Alaska of a majority of the group is impossible or impracticable, the commissioner will obtain the views of the group by mailed referendum.
