           It was a packed agenda for the City Council’s regular meeting last night, but the governing body managed to get down to business and pass a number of resolutions.
           First up on the agenda was the city’s FY 2015 budget. City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski gave a run down of the financial figures for the upcoming fiscal year, which totaled more than $46 million.
    The budget includes the funding of law enforcement, fire and emergency services – which Kniaziowski said expands into the whole Kodiak road system, animal control, public works, engineering, the port and harbor, parks and recreation, administration and the new public library.    
             “And we really did a through assessment of the city’s needs and we believe that we’ve met your goals and we think that we can continue to deliver those services in a high quality manner as we have in the past to the community. And I really, once again, want to thank the management team. They take this seriously every year, every day. And they more than took seriously the budget direction that they were given so what you see is that final product.”

           Kodiak residents had a bit of a scare today when the tsunami alert sirens were accidentally sounded throughout the community. While folks are used to hearing the sirens on Wednesdays at 2 p.m. during the weekly test, today’s came just after noon – on a Thursday.
           The National Tsunami Warning Center didn’t have any alerts posted on its website, and the Kodiak Police Department quickly notified KMXT public radio that the siren was a false alarm.
           Kodiak Fire Chief Rome Kamai said the accidental trigger of the siren came when the fire department was conducting a routine test of its firefighter recall system.

           Two Kodiak Middle School students are in Anchorage this week participating in the STEM Career Explorations program.  STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and the explorations program encourages kids to pursue those career fields by allowing them to participate in STEM-related activities at a younger age.
             “So anything from going down to the Sea Life Center and dissecting a squid to building a computer with ANSEP.”   
              That’s Josephine Edwards-Vollertsen, a regional director for the Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program, also known as ANSEP. ANSEP hosts a Middle and High School Academy that provides a similar introduction and familiarization with STEM, but Edwards-Vollertsen said the career exploration sessions serve as an “inbetween” for the two academies.
