            Kodiak's population has decreased slightly in the past decade. That's according to the latest census figures released Wednesday. The Kodiak Island Borough which includes the entire archipelago saw its population fall from 13,913 in 2000 to 13,592 in 2010 - a loss of 321 people or 2.3 percent. The city of Kodiak lost 204 people - a reduction by 3.2 percent.

            While those numbers are relatively small there have been big gains elsewhere, particularly in the Mat-Su Valley where cities like Wasilla and Palmer have increased by about 43 and 31 percent respectively. Anchorage grew by 12.1 percent.

            This trend will affect revenue sharing and political clout for individual communtiies, says Kodiak Island Borough Manager Rick Gifford.

Borough Assembly Preview - Board of Equalization, Middle School Roof, on Agenda
Thursday, 17 March 2011

            The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly meets tonight (Thursday) to consider several items including an ordinance to amend the borough code regarding appeals to the Board of Equalization. Also on the agenda is  a contract for roof reinforcement at the middle school, and an ordinance supporting the Alaska Commission on Aging's legislative priorities.

The assembly will hold a hearing on the proposed changes to the code dealing with the Board of Equalization. That part of the code hasn't been updated since a minor revision in 1998.

The proposal would clarify and give better guidance for appellants regarding appeals to their property tax assessments.

The middle school roof reinforcement contract is part of seismic upgrades.

Tonight's meeting begins at 7:30 in the Assembly Chambers and will be broadcast live on KMXT.

            It'll be the battle of the bruins this (Thursday) afternoon at the 4-A boys state basketball championship tournament in Anchorage. The Kodiak High School Bears will begin play against the state's number one-ranked team, the Bartlett High School Golden Bears.

            Kodiak, who was the surprise second-place team from the Northern Lights Conference two weeks ago in Homer, will play Bartlett at 1:15 p.m.

            Coach Dave Anderson said the Bears may be the underdogs, but he's looking forward to the game.

            During the NLC tournament, the Bears changed their style of play and slowed the game down against its opponents. Forward Austin Cowley says that should work against Bartlett, too.

            You can hear Bears basketball broadcast live on KVOK.

 

            Other action in the tournament sees Juneau and North Pole playing at 11:30 this morning; Palmer and West Anchorage at 6:45 p.m. and Wasilla versus Service at 8:30. Second round play is tomorrow.
