Or did the assembly simply accept the only proposal it received for recycling services? Those are some of the questions remaining after Threshold's contract was approved by the assembly and then challenged the next day.

            KMXT's Diana Gish has more.

            Last week at its regular meeting the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly approved the introduction of two ordinances which would authorize the issuance of bonds for reconstruction and renovation of the Kodiak High School. Approving the introduction of the ordinances is a preliminary step. The ordinances now advance to the public hearing stage which will take place on August 6th. At that time the assembly will determine whether or not the measure will go to the voters in October.

            In other business, the assembly renewed its contract with Providence Kodiak Island Counseling Center to provide services to the school district for the upcoming school year. The contract, around 380,000 dollars, is the same amount as last year.

            Funding for non-profit organizations was also approved by the assembly for just over 265,000 dollars.

            At the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly's regular meeting last week, a contract was awarded to Threshold for recycling services in Kodiak. Before it was approved, Assemblywoman Louise Stutes raised questions about the language and the fairness of the contract. By the end of the meeting Threshold's $281,540 contract was approved and signed.

            By Friday morning a motion to re-consider the contract was filed by Stutes and Assemblywoman Judy Fulp.

            KMXT's Diana Gish spoke with Stutes about the re-consideration and her opposition to the contract.

            Peter Bechtel is a scientist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Fairbanks. He says the parts of a salmon that do not wind up on the grill hold a lot of possibilities.You can find out more about the value-added uses for Alaska's seafood at the Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation website .
