            This week was a rare opportunity for students from Kodiak's rural schools to assemble in one place. No roads connect these isolated schools though many of the students already know each other as classrooms are linked by video teleconferencr. But this week gave them a chance to work together face-to-face as part of a four-day intensive session in Port Lions. KMXT's Jacob Resneck visited and filed this report.

            Kodiak Senator Gary Stevens has once again formed a bipartisan coalition to run the Alaska Senate. Like the last two years it includes all 10 Senate Democrats and six of the 10 Senate Republicans. What is different this year is who makes up the leadership. Last year the majority leader was Democrat Johnny Ellis, but he has been moved to Rules Chair, while Republican Kevin Meyer was made Majority Leader.

            Perhaps it's not surprising but there was a much higher turnout for Tuesday's General Election compared to municipal elections last month. Unofficial tallies show a turnout of about 34 percent compared to a 21 percent turnout on October 5th.

            Kodiak Island Borough Clerk Nova Javier has been crunching the numbers.

Business Property Taxes on Assembly Agenda PDF Print E-mail

            A new law exempting business owners of the first $20,000 they own in assets is being considered by the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly. The draft of the ordinance will come before local lawmakers at their meeting this evening.

            It broadly defines personal business property as such items as machinery and equipment as well as furnishing and fixtures at a commercial enterprise.

            But the carrot in the deal also has a stick. Fines for failing to declare business assets would increase from 10 to 20 percent of the value of the assessed property.

            The ordinance would also lower taxes on commercial aircraft. Last month the borough assembly heard from commercial pilots complaining that tax rates were too high. The proposal would set a tax rate based on weight rather than a plane's value as is done in other municipalities including Juneau and Homer.

            Other changes would add charter fishing boats that are under five net tons to the tax rolls by closing a loophole designed for commercial fishing vessels.

            Tonight's meeting will also welcome incoming Assemblywoman Carol Austerman.

            The meeting is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly Chambers and will be broadcast live here on KMXT.
