           It’s been almost a year since the topic of composting biosolids has made it to a Kodiak City Council agenda, but work has been well underway to make it a reality. The design for the new composting facility is at 95 percent, and City Manager Aimee Kniaziowksi said they are getting ready to submit the design to the the Alaska Department of Enviornmental Conservation for permitting.
            “That’s the next step and once we’re issued a permit then we can begin the process of building this facility and migrating over. We’re currently doing compost class B on the borough landfill at the top of the current landfill pile, so we’ll migrate that to the new facility once it’s been designed and ready.”   
             The goal is to eventually produce a higher quality class A compost at the new facility.
              Mark Kozak is the public works director for the city and said a meeting was held with folks from the Monashka Bay community about a year ago to talk about preliminary plans for the composting facility.
              “Because they’re the nearest neighbor to this potential site. We took their public input and then we started the design. And now we’re at the point where the design is ready to be submitted to DEC to start the permit process. And what we want to do is visit with the public again, let them see the design and ask their questions, so that they know when we submit our permit, what the facility is like, how the process is managed and handled and then we can hear and get feedback from them now if there’s anything they have concerns about.”

            On today's edition of Talk of the Rock we'll hear an interview with Kodiak City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski, Public Works Director Mark Kozak and City Engineer Glenn Melvin about the proposed composting facility at the landfill. The class A composting facility is 95 percent designed and city staff are seeking public input before they submit the plans to the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation. 

            There will be a public meeting about composting and plans for the new facility on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Bayside Fire Hall. The gathering will include a panel question and answer session with three composting experts from CH2M Hill, the company designing the composting facility, and a representative from the DEC.
            Kniaziowski said city staff will present the current design for the project, including maps and pictures, and detail how it will operate and the ultimate goal for class A composting in Kodiak.

Fisherman Injured in Winch Incident
Tuesday, 26 August 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    Kodiak Fire Department rescue personnel were called to Pier 2 Monday afternoon in response to an injury to a fisherman aboard the FV Provider. Fire Chief Rome Kamai said the man’s leg was caught in a winch and his foot was crushed.
    He said an ambulance crew responded just before 4 p.m., but soon found they needed more equipment to retrieve the injured person.
    “It was determined that the person with the injury was not able to walk or climb the ladder, and so we had to bring in some other equipment; our lader truck and our rescue truck that we use for these kinds of situations," Kamai said. "We have ropes and systems that we can use to put the patient, or person, into what we call a Stokes basket. And then we raised them up and off the vessel with our ladder truck and rope.”
    Kamai said it took about 25 minutes to get the unidentified fisherman from the boat into the ambulance, which he described as a pretty quick recovery. The injured man was then transported to Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center for treatment. His current condition is unknown.

Talk of Closing KLC 'Premature,' says Campbell
Tuesday, 26 August 2014

    In the aftermath of yesterday morning’s rocket explosion at the Kodiak Launch Complex, calls for the facility’s closure have resumed. Never universally popular among Kodiak residents, the KLC has had only one launch in the past three years, yesterday’s, and that blew up, causing what appears to be significant damage to the launch tower and assembly buildings. According to Alaska Aerospace CEO Craig Campbell, there are currently no other launches scheduled.
    However, Campbell says it would be premature to conclude that yesterday’s explosion and ensuing damage would bring an end to the Kodiak Launch Complex.
    In an e-mail to KMXT, Campbell said a damage assessment and repair estimate will be made over the next week, and that the AAC’s legal counsel and the state’s risk management office will be looking into who is liable for the damages. The U.S. Army leased the Kodiak Launch Complex for $5-million to test its hypersonic glider. Campbell said it’s his intention that AAC “will remain a viable aerospace company for the state of Alaska.”
    Formed by the state of Alaska, the AAC has depended heavily on state subsidies, but Campbell said the corporation has no intention to ask the state for capital improvement funds to repair the explosion damage to the Kodiak Launch Complex.
    No official photos of the damage at the KLC or debris surrounding it on Narrow Cape have been released. However an aerial photo taken by Kodiak’s Eric Schwantes and posted to Facebook shows extensive superficial damage to both the launch tower and assembly buildings at the launch site. Hundreds of scraps of sheets metal siding can be seen strewn around the structures. The extent of structural damage is not yet known. No damage to the launch control buildings two miles away has been reported.
    In an e-mail to KMXT yesterday evening, Alaska Aerospace’s Senior Vice President Mark Greby said road closure restrictions have been moved back. KMXT had reported that yesterday, but the Alaska Department of Transportation later announced the road would be closed at the mouth of the Pasagshak River, before it goes up the bluff. That changed at 9 o’clock last night, when the closure was moved back to the gates of the Kodiak Launch Complex, allowing access to Surfer Beach. Fossil Beach remains inaccessible.
    In what is likely to be a well attended and lively meeting, Campbell said the corporation’s board of directors will be meeting in Kodiak on Thursday.
