            Kodiak's south end holds a wealth of petroglyphs. Whales, fish, faces and other figures carved into rocks by the Alutiiq ancestors-stories in stone.

             While you may not easily get to the island's south end to see the petroglyphs in person you can still get the touch-it-yourself experience of the petroglyphs. A new exhibit at the Alutiiq museum brings the petroglyphs at Cape Alitak to town in the form of full scale models that invite you to experience them first hand.

Assembly Preview - Budget, Mill Rates and Severenc Taxes PDF Print E-mail

             Tonight's regular Kodiak Island Borough Assembly meeting is expected to be long and contentious as the assembly prepares to patch a 30 percent hole in next year's budget before July 1st.

             Two public hearings tonight include school district funding and a proposed increase in the severance tax. The first has garnered a lot of public support, the later has raised the ire of local fishermen.

            School funding has remained steady the past few years, but supporters at a recent assembly work session asked for increased funds. Assembly members discussed funding local schools no higher than current levels.

The resolution set for tonight's public hearing would establish the minimum amount of funds the borough would provide the school district. The school district has a looming deadline and needs a figure to plug into its budget. The borough assembly could decide at a later date to increase funding for schools.

The second public hearing deals with the severance tax.

Right now the severance tax on resources harvested inside the borough is the same as the mill rate on real property. Borough staff recommends disconnecting the tax from the mill rate and increasing it to a flat 1.5 percent of value on resources. That includes fish, timber and minerals.
