            Kodiak's population has decreased slightly in the past decade. That's according to the latest census figures released Wednesday. The Kodiak Island Borough which includes the entire archipelago saw its population fall from 13,913 in 2000 to 13,592 in 2010 - a loss of 321 people or 2.3 percent. The city of Kodiak lost 204 people - a reduction by 3.2 percent.

            While those numbers are relatively small there have been big gains elsewhere, particularly in the Mat-Su Valley where cities like Wasilla and Palmer have increased by about 43 and 31 percent respectively. Anchorage grew by 12.1 percent.

            This trend will affect revenue sharing and political clout for individual communtiies, says Kodiak Island Borough Manager Rick Gifford.

            The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly meets tonight (Thursday) to consider several items including an ordinance to amend the borough code regarding appeals to the Board of Equalization. Also on the agenda is  a contract for roof reinforcement at the middle school, and an ordinance supporting the Alaska Commission on Aging's legislative priorities.

The assembly will hold a hearing on the proposed changes to the code dealing with the Board of Equalization. That part of the code hasn't been updated since a minor revision in 1998.

The proposal would clarify and give better guidance for appellants regarding appeals to their property tax assessments.

The middle school roof reinforcement contract is part of seismic upgrades.

Tonight's meeting begins at 7:30 in the Assembly Chambers and will be broadcast live on KMXT.
