Witness Testifies on Local Cars in CommSta Murder Trial
Thursday, 17 April 2014



           A defense witness in the trial of the man charged with killing two co-workers at a Kodiak Coast Guard station says there are plenty of other cars on the island that fit the dimensions of a vehicle recorded near the murder scene.
           Federal defender investigator Deatrich Sheffield says 263 blue vehicles registered on the island fit the same dimensions and that doesn't count Coast Guardsmen cars registered elsewhere.
           Sheffield testified Thursday in the trial of electronics technician James Wells, who's charged with killing Richard Belisle and James Hopkins shortly after 7 a.m. on April 12, 2012.
           Prosecutors say Wells used his wife's blue sport utility vehicle to drive to the scene.
           A security camera recorded a blue vehicle driving past the shop at 7:09 a.m. and returning five minutes later.

           Tonight the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly will meet for a regular meeting and take a look at a proposed change order to the Kodiak High School Addition and Renovation’s project management contract.
           A year ago, the borough hired Bruce Walter of Wilson Engineering for project management services associated with the high school, and tonight the assembly will be asked to review that contract, and decide whether or not to allow certain changes to the agreement. 
           The changes include a housing allowance increase from $1,600 to $1,900 for Walter, and a slight increase to the company’s hourly rate. Those increases didn’t fly with many borough assembly members, who discussed the contract change order during Tuesday’s work session.
           Assemblywoman Carol Austerman said she didn’t appreciate that the company is asking for more money a year into the contract, and almost $2,000 for housing. However, the borough only signed a one year contract with Wilson Engineering, so the requested change orders were actually part of negotiations to enter into a second year of work.
          That also didn’t sit well with Austerman, who said she didn’t understand why the borough would sign a one year contract for a project that was expected to last three years.
           “This is the kind of stuff where it really makes us look bad to the public.”

           It’s been six months since animal control service returned to the borough’s road system. During Tuesday’s work session the borough assembly heard from Community Development Director Bob Pederson about some animal control numbers the borough recently received from the city.
            “And if you look at the numbers, 2-1, the calls in the city versus the borough. Which I think surprised us a little bit. We figured there might be some pent up demand for animal control in the borough because the contract wasn’t in place there up until November.”
             Pederson said based on the annual contract cost, the animal service is actually costing the borough around $760 per call. The cost was derived by dividing the contract in half to account for the six months it’s been in place, and then dividing that number by the number of calls.
             “Assuming that the borough is paying for half of the animal control service, there’s two employees that do it I’m told, the average cost in the city would be $355 per call. So we’ve reached out to the city and wanted to confirm that cost split. I’m not sure quite how that was structured and the contract isn’t clear on that, it’s a lump sum amount. So if we are splitting the cost of the program I think we should have a discussion with the city about cost split.”
