Trash Talk Expected at Assembly Meeting PDF Print E-mail

            Kodiak Island Borough Assembly members are likely to get an earful tonight. At its regular meeting the assembly will hold a public hearing on a proposal to expand trash pick-up service.

            The controversial roll cart expansion was put on the agenda at the request of the assembly which hopes to hear from those directly affected by the expansion.

            Those who have commented publicly thus far, have largely been unhappy with the idea. Many have said at past borough meetings and work sessions that they were expecting transfer stations. Others have expressed doubts about the ability of "bear resistant" carts to hold off hungry bears which will soon be out of dens looking for easy food.

            On the other hand, the borough says it has received numerous requests for roll cart service outside the current limits. The in-city cart service has been very successful and well-received according to borough manager Rick Gifford. He also says that knowing what areas will eventually receive the roll cart service will make it easier to determine where to place transfer stations and what size they should be.

            In other business, the second public hearing tonight is a rezone for a portion of a tract on Near Island. If approved, the ordinance would change the land from conservation to public use. The piece of property includes the research facility and scientist housing and will include the new Fish and Game building. The new zoning will allow offices for local, state and federal government use.

            Tonight's borough assembly meeting begins at 7:30 in the Assembly Chambers. As usual it will be broadcast live on KMXT.

Recently GCI has resumed broadcast of local government meetings on Channel 12.

             The Alaska State Ferry Tustumena has returned to Kodiak since undergoing repairs at the Seward shipyard. The problem lay in hatch covers that are part of the elevator system that load the car deck. Alaska Marine Highway chief John Falvey says the work couldn't be put off.

            Falvey says the ageing ferry - it was constructed in 1963 - is something state ferry managers are aware is becoming an issue. It's recognized, he says, that the Tustumena is approaching its golden years.

            The state ferry system is also in the midst of revamping its website to offer real-time tracking of the fleet. People would be able to get up-to-the-minute updates and track progress on color charts. Falvey added that the new system is in beta testing but may be online as early as late summer or early fall.

            A bureaucratic tussle over security has forced Alaska Airlines to stop carrying certain types of mail on passenger planes. Most communities have been able to reroute affected parcels but it's caused headaches across the state. Meanwhile both Alaska Airlines and the Transportation Security Administration are keeping mum on what it's all about. KMXT's Jacob Resneck reports.
