two governing bodies are meeting separately tonight at 7:30 - the Kodiak Island
Borough Assembly will hold a work session downstairs of the borough building,
while the Kodiak City Council will hold a regular meeting upstairs in the
item on the council agenda of course is the introduction of an ordinance to
increase the sales tax from 6 percent to 7 percent and increase the maximum
taxable purchase from $750 to $3,500. Since the ordinance is simply being
introduced tonight, public comment on it will only be heard at the beginning or
end of the meeting. A public hearing and final vote on the sales tax issue will
occur in May.
Also on the
city agenda is a resolution to support fertilization of several Kodiak area
lakes by the Kodiak Regional Aquaculture Association to enhance salmon
downstairs, the borough assembly will be looking for answers from the
administration as to why there's been no progress on finding an independent
project manager for the Kodiak High School expansion and renovation project.
Several assembly members at last week's regular meeting expressed frustration
that no progress has been made.
assembly will also discuss selling borough land to free it up for residential
development, something local realtors have been pushing for.
meetings are at 7:30 tonight. The city council meeting will be broadcast live
