Assembly to Address Economic Development Tonight PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 17 June 2010

            When the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly meets tonight members will consider two contracts that relate to economic development.

The first deals with the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce, the other has to do with the Kodiak Island Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The borough provides a large portion of funding for both non-profits. In return the chamber provides economic planning and project development within the borough. The visitors bureau markets Kodiak as a destination and provides tourism development services inside the borough.

In other business, assembly members will act as a board of adjustment in an appeal of a planning and zoning decision in the Pasagshak Subdivision.

Richard and Nancy Diemer are appealing a neighbor's operation of a full service lodge.*

The borough assembly meets in the assembly chambers at 7:30 this evening. As always, the meeting will be broadcast live here on KMXT.

            One person was hospitalized and two others treated and released this past weekend because they ate local clams tainted with Paralytic Shellfish Poison harvested from local beaches.

            Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation spokesman Mike Hyre said that the butter clams were gathered at Chiniak and Middle bays and Mayflower Beach.

PSP, as it is known, is highly dangerous and can lead to death if the level of toxin consumed is great enough.

            Symptoms include tingling fingers and other body parts, dizziness, numbness, and shortness of breath. In extreme cases breathing is labored as muscles needed to work the lungs shut down--eventually leading to death.

            DEC warns that people on Kodiak Island should not eat locally caught clams, as there are no beaches certified as safe for shellfish collection.

            DEC notes that the clams and shellfish you eat in a restaurant have been carefully tested and certified as safe from PSP.

            In an unrelated incident, one person in Juneau is hospitalized in stable condition after eating tainted shellfish from Auke Bay.

            A local ranching family, which grazes their herd on an island south of Kodiak, recently received a second federal grant for the cutting edge work they do on creating value-added products from their cattle. Bob and Nathan Mudd previously received a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant to build a portable slaughterhouse and processing facility, which is set up on Sitkinak Island. Now, the USDA has given them another grant in the amount of nearly $132,000 to create more products onsite.
