            Last week's storm dumped an unprecedented amount of snow on Kodiak, wreaking havoc with everyday life. Even on Friday, road crews were still hauling snow from city streets. KMXT's Jay Barrett went on a ride-along with Joe Henderson, one of the city's dump truck drivers, to find out more about the process of clearing our streets.

            The city of Kodiak's Public Works Maintenance Supervisor, Chris Lund, said the city's five trucks make about 325 trips in a 13-hour day. With an average of 20,000 pounds in each load, the city is removing over six-million pounds of snow from the roads each day.

            Though he only got 15 responses from the 33 merchants he sent the survey to, the results seemed consistent in considering the event a success.

Legislative Pay Raise Law Deadline Nears PDF Print E-mail

            The Alaska State Legislature has until Saturday to reject the pay raise an independent commission has recommended for them, or it will go into effect automatically on January 1st next year. 

            The five member Alaska State Officers Compensation Commission was created during last year's legislative session. It includes a couple former legislators. They were charged with reviewing the salaries and benefits for the legislature, the governor, lieutenant governor and department heads. The commission announced earlier this year that it felt raises were needed across the board, and that legislators should be paid a flat 50,400-dollars per year.

            Currently, legislators are given a fixed annual salary of just over 24-thousand dollars, and an additional 27-thousand for per diem during the legislative session. They are also allowed to collect per diem during the nine months the legislature is not in session, too. During the interim, a legislator can collect 150-dollars a day if he or she works at least four hours on constituent matters, or attends a meeting on legislative or public business. Travel time is included.
