Restrictions on Mayoral Power Considered by Assembly
Thursday, 20 January 2011

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

            A controversy over a letter written by the Kodiak Island Borough mayor last fall has resurfaced in the form of an ordinance which will be considered by the borough assembly tonight (Thursday).

            The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly will hear in first reading an ordinance that would require assembly discussion or approval before the mayor can speak on behalf of the borough.

            That would include any written or electronic communications or giving testimony before any legislative or regulatory body.

            The ordinance is an outgrowth of a controversy over a letter written by borough mayor Jerome Selby in September to the North Pacific Fishery Management Council. The letter objecting to a proposal shutting down local trawlers in areas where others where hoping to protect tanner crab populations. The letter was written on behalf of the assembly and the community as a whole.

            The borough assembly later rescinded the letter citing that members had not been consulted beforehand regarding the mayor taking the controversial position.

            Being considered in first reading means that if approved tonight, the measure must return for a second reading and public hearing at a future assembly meeting.

            The other ordinance on tonight's assembly agenda is one that is returning for its second reading-and possible passage. This one would rezone a parcel of land at the corner of Rezanof and Woodland Drive from rural residential to business use.

            In other business, the Kodiak High School renovation project will take a big step forward if a proposed contract for architectural design services is awarded.

            The assembly meets at 7:30 in the Borough Assembly Chambers.

            KMXT will broadcast the meeting live.

Kodiak Man Captured After Leaping Out Window, Crossing Frigid River
Wednesday, 19 January 2011

             A 28-year-old Kodiak man tried to evade police by jumping from a second-story hotel window and swimming across a river before being arrested Tuesday morning. Alaska State Troopers, backed by city police officers, Coast Guard Military Police and a probation officer arrived at the Comfort Inn looking for Benjamin Bodi who had an outstanding warrant for violating felony probation.

            Bodi had failed to check in with his probation officer over the past four weeks and had left his last known residence without notice, said Trooper Dennis Dupras.

            Upon seeing police, Bodi went out a back window, down the side of the roof and leapt from a window. He then fled into the woods with police in pursuit and swam across the Buskin River before police reached him on the other side.

            “By that time he was too cold to resist,” Dupras said.

            Bodi was arrested without further incident and taken to Kodiak City Jail. He was checked by medics and treated for mild hypothermia but did not require hospitalization, Dupras said. A corrections officer said Wednesday Bodi remained in custody.

            Further information on the man’s criminal history was not available. Dupras did not say why he was on probation in the first place. He is due back in court for felony violation of parole. Dupras said no further charges are likely to be filed.

            Yesterday was the first day of the 27th Alaska Legislature. It was spent largely on preparation, such as swearing in the members and going over committee assignments.

            Kodiak Representative Alan Austerman assumed the title of Majority Leader this year, after Ketchikan's Kyle Johansen walked out of the caucus over a dispute late last year.

            Austerman said it was good to be back in Juneau and he was optimistic about the upcoming session.

            The Speaker of the House again this session is Representative Mike Chenault of Nikiski. He said he was pleased with the make up of the majority.  

            The legislature is scheduled to be in session for 90 days.
