harbor users will be able to pay for parking as they use it under a new plan
approved last week by the Kodiak City Council.
Next on the
list of things to do is to order the self-pay machines that will allow
fishermen to pay by cash, smart card or credit card. KMXT's Maggie Wall has

City Council at a special meeting last week approved a plan allowing eligible
harbor users for pay for long-term parking using a self-pay kiosk. The
pay-as-you-go option, addresses the concern that fishermen had that they shouldn't
have to pay for a month or 6-months at a time if they only need parking for,
say, two weeks.
recall that City Mayor Carolyn Floyd told council members, city hall staff, and
the harbor staff to set up a meeting with the port and harbor advisory board
and figure something out.
Manager Aimée Kniaziowski said they met and came up with this new parking plan:

The cost of
parking will be a dollar a day.
Council Member John Whiddon said he was pleased with the plan:

As far as
making money, harbor staff estimates that the new pay-as-you-park kiosks will
generate from $20,000 to more than $60,000 a year.
it seems the problem of paying for parking is solved, it's not yet a totally
done deal. The council still must authorize the purchase of the self-pay kiosks
at a future meeting.
