            At the Kodiak City Council work session tonight (Tuesday) the councilmembers will go over the first draft of a letter to new Governor Sean Parnell, asking him to put about 2-million-dollars into his capital budget to help the city pay for the jail portion of the new police station.

            City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski explained that if the state doesn't come through, the costs will probably go up even higher.

 

--          (Jail 1              35 sec              "The problem has been ... crux of the issue there.")

 

            If the state does not come through with the money, the council has said the city will close the current jail at the end of June, next year.

 

--          (Jail 2              25 sec              "If there is not funding ... real setback for the project.")

 

            Kniaziowski (Kenya-zhoff-ski)i says there's a lot of support from state agencies to fund the new jail. With Senate President Gary Stevens a Kodiak resident, the city manager says the project should have a good shot at being funded if Governor Parnell is also behind it:

 

--          (Jail 3              26 sec              "And we think, and our advice ... for providing that funding.")

 

            The council work session tonight is at 7:30 in the borough building. The council's regular meeting is on Thursday, but the letter to Parnell is NOT on the agenda for approval.

            Coincidentally, the governor will be here in Kodiak the next day to hold a public reception at the Fisheries Research Center on Near Island. Kniaziowski (Kenya-zhoff-ski) said she was told by Parnell's staff that his schedule is tight, and he might not get a chance to tour the current jail, but she is sure the need for a new jail will be discussed with him while he's in town.
