            Borough taxes and how to balance next year's budget are back on the table for tonight's regular Kodiak Island Borough Assembly meeting.

             Tonight's agenda includes setting next year's mill rate for property taxes, changing the severance tax for fish and other resources, and adjusting the current year's budget to account for actual costs and incomes.

            Taxes and the budget have been especially contentious this year because of the shortfall in income and proposed cuts to school district funding. In addition, fishermen and others have criticized the severance tax increase for targeting a limited group of users and not the broad base the property tax hits.

            Right now the mill rate is proposed at point-25 mills with an additional 7-point-75 mills for school funding, for a total of 8 mills. Additional mills are assessed depending on whether the property is inside a service district.

Kodiak City Council to Meet Over Redistricting PDF Print E-mail

            The Kodiak City Council will hold a special meeting tonight to take public comments and to discuss proposals for redistricting Kodiak's state house and senate districts.

             Tonight's special meeting begins at 6 o'clock in the borough conference room. The only items on the agenda deal with redistricting options.

           Over the holiday weekend it was learned that yet another proposal for Kodiak is being considered-putting Kodiak and Bethel in the same senate district. That means Kodiak's senate district would include Bethel by way of Tyonek, which is about 40 miles west of Anchorage and would bypass Bristol Bay, Dillingham and the Alaska Peninsula all together.

 

            Kodiak's Bob Brodie is a member of the state's redistricting board. He said the driving force in the Kodiak-Bethel proposal is that three of the state's 20 senate district needs to have a voting population that is at least 42 percent Native. Since Kodiak's Native voting population is about 18 percent it needs to be linked with a region that is about 80 to 82 percent Native. Brodie said both Bethel and Nome meet that requirement.

            There's been a new development in the process of reapportioning Alaska's House and Senate districts. Over the weekend, according to Bob Brodie, a move to group Kodiak with the Bethel House District to make a new Senate District was floated. Brodie, who is Kodiak's representative to the Redistricting Board, joined Jay Barrett on the KMXT morning news today to explain the development:

             Comments can be e-mailed, and the contact information for the five members of the Redistricting Board are available on the web.
