            The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly and the Kodiak City Council will meet in a joint work session tonight to discuss local issues in common.

            The work session, which will be held in the assembly chambers, will cover topics from local fisheries to crossing guards, to capital improvement projects and land transfers for the watershed.

            A copy of the agenda for tonight's work session is posted on the Borough's webpage and includes details regarding two proposals for being the city-borough fisheries consultant as well as a proposal by the Kodiak Football League to train students to be crossing guards.

            Joint work sessions are an opportunity for the two bodies to hash out differences. An example is the capital improvement projects lists that each prepared for the state legislature. Both Senator Gary Stevens and Representative Alan Austerman recently told both the assembly and the city council it is difficult to lobby for Kodiak projects when there are two lists. They have encouraged the governing bodies to somehow combine their lists so that they can present one list of projects down in Juneau.

            Both the council and assembly members have stated at work sessions that they would be willing to consider combining lists if it will get better results.

            Tonight's joint city-borough work session begins at 7:30 in the borough assembly chambers.

             Kodiak's jobless rate spiked to well within the double digit range last month. The unemployment rate for the Kodiak Island Borough pegged out at 11-point-3 percent for December.

It's not much of a surprise that Kodiak's fishery-dependent economy struggled in December, but it is a stark comparison to the November rate of 8-point-8 percent.

            I could have been worse-and in fact was worse in 2009. The December unemployment rate a year ago was a whopping 13-point-1 percent.

            In terms of actual people the Kodiak Island Borough labor force total 6,170 people in December. That compares to just over 6,600 in November, and to the December 2009 workforce total which was 6,131.
