afr_logo_salmon-25-years.jpg            Coming up this week, those angry charter boat captains give NOAA's Jane Lubchenco an earful in Homer; Saint Paul's new boat harbor is ready for fishermen, and how many little fish does it take to make a big one? We had help this week from KBBI's Aaron Selbig in Homer, APRN's Steven Heimel in Anchorage, KUCB's Alexandra Gutierrez in Unalaska and Northwest News Network's Tom Banse in Warrenton, Oregon.

            The deadline to make comments on the Kodiak Road System Trails Master Plan is September 1st. The plan is the culmination of more than a decade of planning, mapping and assessing trails on the Kodiak road system.

            Bud Cassidy is the director for the community development department with the Kodiak Island Borough and said having a master plan in place for Kodiak trails is beneficial for a number of reasons.

            Cassidy said by getting all their ducks in a row when it comes to trails, the borough will have information needed to seek out funding for maintaining those trails, providing signage or even creating new trails. He said the effort to make Kodiak more recreationally accessible comes from a nationwide push toward outdoor recreation.

            The plan is available online here. The Borough Parks and Recreation Committee encourages community members to make comments about the plan and also the accuracy of the maps, designated uses, property lines or conditions of the trails. People have until September 1st to contact the community development department at the borough to share their insight.

             The Kodiak Island Borough needs to expand the landfill, a very expensive proposition, for which the borough hopes to get funding help from the state. The deadline for filing for a Department of Environmental Conservation grant is Friday, August 26. 

            In order to meet the fast approaching deadline, the borough assembly will hold a brief special meeting prior to tonight's regular work session.

            The sole item on the special meeting agenda is a resolution which designates getting the grant for the landfill expansion as the borough's number one local state funding priority for Fiscal Year 2012.

            The landfill is expected to reach capacity in 2014. Any expansions must meet strenuous environmental standards which makes enlarging the landfill especially costly. The DEC grant would offset much of the costs, though the borough would still be left to come up with the remaining funds. The two phases of the project are expected to exceed $13 million.
