           It’s a relatively light meeting for the Kodiak City Council tonight. The council will take a look at the city’s federal capital improvements program list. It includes a number of projects the city hopes to have funded with federal dollars this year and will be sent to Washington D.C. following council approval. The Monashka pumphouse replacement tops that list, followed by Shelikof Street bulkhead parking and Shelikof Street pedestrian improvements.
           Also on tonight’s agenda is an office space lease with Morpho Trust USA, Inc., a company that issues Transportation Worker Identification Credentials, or TWICs. TWIC cards are needed for dockworkers of any kind in Kodiak.

         Finally, tonight the council will vote on whether or not to accept the city’s audit that was presented during Tuesday’s work session. Overall, the city was given a clean bill of health in terms of finances by Auditor Michelle Drew of BDO USA.
           Tonight’s meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. in the borough assembly chambers and will be broadcast live on KMXT.

          The city got a clean report card in terms of finances last night. Each year the city is required by law to undergo an audit and 2013 was no exception. During the City Council’s work session Michelle Drew of BDO USA presented the audit’s findings to the council. Drew led the 2013 audit and said in general it was a good year for the city.
           In 2012 Drew advised the council to keep an eye on the shipyard fund, and she echoed that for 2013, but added that the financial situation in that area is certainly improving. 
           “The revenues in the shipyard are definitely up in 2013 relative to 2012. So that is something that is trending in the right direction in terms of helping this fund. Operating expenses held stead, so that’s also good. You know the increase in revenue matched with kind of a stable expenditure base. So we actually, our revenues did cover our day to day operating costs.”
            Drew said there is still debt associated with this fund, but overall it is going in the right direction.

           Two men have been arraigned in Kodiak District Court following a drug seizure over the weekend. Kodiak Police Chief Ronda Wallace said the drugs were seized during a search of two hotel rooms on Sunday and have an estimated street value of at least $120,000. She said the investigation began when police officers noticed suspicious behavior by two individuals in the downtown area on Sunday.
           “After making contact with them it was later discovered that one of them was a probation parole absconder from anchorage. And that prompted them to make contact again with them. And during that contact it was discovered some drug paraphernalia. That prompted the officers to stop, apply for search warrants, which gave us access to two rooms because it was discovered during that little bit of investigatory time that there was two rooms with those two individuals. So they were able to execute search warrants on those rooms.”

            The room searches yielded more than 76 grams of suspected black tar heroin, 28 grams of Afghan brown heroin, 10 grams of methamphetamine, 42 grams of crack cocaine, 6 grams of powder cocaine and what appeared to be the two men’s personal stash.

           There are about 368 miles of trails in the greater Kodiak area and one local organization is looking to make them more recognizable. Tom Pogson is the director of marine programs and outreach for Kodiak Island Trails Network and said there is some funding in the works that will help put up signs throughout town, identifying trails and routes.
           “There’s been a lot of feedback to the trails network about how there are so many trails but there’s not a lot of information on the trails posted at the trails. And we are in the process of developing a grant, it’s an experimental project to do signage at trails in some of the areas that are close to Kodiak.”
           He said the hope is to create signs that will provide basic information, like the names and distances of certain trails. 
            “Probably will increase people’s interest in using these trails. Especially for newcomers, and there’s a lot of newcomers to the island.”

           The areas ITN is looking to build signs for include Termination Point, Near Island, Jack’s Lakes, Russian Ridge and the easement trail at Anton Larsen Bay. The organization will work closely with respective land owners of those areas in the process.

            Pogson said the sign construction is likely to start next fall, and the hope is to install signs sometime in 2015. Funding for the signs will come from Alaska Department of Natural Resources’ Outdoor Recreational Trails Advisory Board and Recreational Trails Program.
