           Kodiak’s governing bodies are gearing up for the upcoming North Pacific Fishery Management Council meeting next month. Last night both the City Council and Borough Assembly met separately and discussed a proposed letter to the fishery council that addresses bycatch management for the Gulf of Alaska trawl fleet.
           Assemblywoman Chris Lynch co-chairs the fisheries work group said the letter was created as a way to ensure Kodiak has a seat at the table in any future bycatch management plans proposed by the fishery council.
           “We have had a seat at the table. We’ve been very involved and by resolution both the city and the borough adopted goals for management programs and over arching purposes – we have followed these. This new letter follows the same format as our first proposal did – we would like the council to continue analyzing everything that’s on the table.”   
            Lynch said local fishermen were fully involved in the fisheries work group meetings that drafted this letter.

    At the Kodiak City Council meeting at the end of July the city manager was given the authority to sign a deal with the FBI that would allow Kodiak police to operate outside city limits. It’s part of the Safe Streets Task Force program that is in place in over 100 cities in the nation.
    City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski said the agreement was sought to fight what is widely described as an increase in hard drugs in Kodiak.
    “It really (has) become a serious problem in Kodiak, not just from a city police, but the Alaska troopers, and it creates a chain of events that are very negative on the community including increased burglaries, break ins and so forth, as well as overdoses, the list goes on and on. So it’s a real problem in our community and a growing problem. Kodiak has become a hub for our region of drug activity distribution point for drugs in our community. And it’s an attractive place for drug distributors, drug gang folks, whoever’s involved in this.”
    Councilman Charlie Davidson voted for the agreement, saying something needs to be done about the drug influx.
    “I think this memorandum of understanding will enhance the curtailment of this eveil thing that’s eating our children alive, practically. And hopefully this will clean up our streets and basically protect our younger population from the demons of this.”
    The program, as Kniaziowski explained, has passed muster with the city attorney and insurance carrier, and any extra work the officers do will be reimbursed by the FBI.

City, Boro to Review Bycatch Managment Letter
Thursday, 25 September 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

           It’s a busy night of meetings for Kodiak’s governing bodies. The night begins at 6 p.m. with a City Council work session. On that agenda is a presentation from Kodiak Electric Association about the possibility of using a flywheel to store energy generated on the island during peak production periods. The council will also hear a quarterly capital project update and review a letter to the North Pacific Fisheries Management Council on Gulf of Alaska bycatch management. Tonight’s work session will be held in the borough assembly chambers and will be followed by the council’s regular meeting at 7:30 p.m.
            The Borough Assembly will also gather tonight for a work session and discuss the possibility of creating a transitional housing facility in Kodiak. The goal would be to provide housing assistance to community members struggling with drug and alcohol addiction.
             Like the city council, tonight the assembly will also be reviewing its Gulf trawl bycatch management letter. The assembly will also discuss funding a guard rail for the Bay View Road Service Area and hear an update from the assessing department of the borough.
              Tonight’s work session will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the borough conference room, below the assembly chambers.

Coming up this week, a Haines fisherman is safe after is boat sinks out from under him; a mixed decision in an Unalaska murder trial, and Western Alaska Natives ask for increased bycatch reduction.
