           Tonight the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly will meet for a regular meeting and take a look at a proposed change order to the Kodiak High School Addition and Renovation’s project management contract.
           A year ago, the borough hired Bruce Walter of Wilson Engineering for project management services associated with the high school, and tonight the assembly will be asked to review that contract, and decide whether or not to allow certain changes to the agreement. 
           The changes include a housing allowance increase from $1,600 to $1,900 for Walter, and a slight increase to the company’s hourly rate. Those increases didn’t fly with many borough assembly members, who discussed the contract change order during Tuesday’s work session.
           Assemblywoman Carol Austerman said she didn’t appreciate that the company is asking for more money a year into the contract, and almost $2,000 for housing. However, the borough only signed a one year contract with Wilson Engineering, so the requested change orders were actually part of negotiations to enter into a second year of work.
          That also didn’t sit well with Austerman, who said she didn’t understand why the borough would sign a one year contract for a project that was expected to last three years.
           “This is the kind of stuff where it really makes us look bad to the public.”

Six Months Later, Boro Surprised By Animal Control Numbers

           It’s been six months since animal control service returned to the borough’s road system. During Tuesday’s work session the borough assembly heard from Community Development Director Bob Pederson about some animal control numbers the borough recently received from the city.
            “And if you look at the numbers, 2-1, the calls in the city versus the borough. Which I think surprised us a little bit. We figured there might be some pent up demand for animal control in the borough because the contract wasn’t in place there up until November.”
             Pederson said based on the annual contract cost, the animal service is actually costing the borough around $760 per call. The cost was derived by dividing the contract in half to account for the six months it’s been in place, and then dividing that number by the number of calls.
             “Assuming that the borough is paying for half of the animal control service, there’s two employees that do it I’m told, the average cost in the city would be $355 per call. So we’ve reached out to the city and wanted to confirm that cost split. I’m not sure quite how that was structured and the contract isn’t clear on that, it’s a lump sum amount. So if we are splitting the cost of the program I think we should have a discussion with the city about cost split.”

Kodiak Sac Roe Herring Fishery Underway
Thursday, 17 April 2014

This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
    One section has already closed in the Kodiak area sac roe herring season that opened Tuesday. In an announcement, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game closed the Outer Kiliuda Bay Section of the Eastside District yesterday at 11:10 a.m., for the remainder of the season.
    The fishery kicked off at noon on Tuesday for both gillnet and purse seine fishermen.
    Unlike more well-known fisheries such as Sitka Sound and Togiak Bay, the Kodiak area has several dozen bays, each with their own guideline harvest level and gear type restrictions. Some sections are open until further notice, others are on nine- and three-hour alternating schedules, and a couple haven’t even opened yet.
    Test fishing began in the combined Village Islands/Uganik Bay sections and the Danger Bay section on Tuesday, and Fish and Game says they will be opened by emergency order from the management biologist on the grounds when test fishing detects fishable amounts of good quality herring, meaning their size and roe percentage. Those fisheries may be extremely short in duration for seine gear – perhaps as little as 10 minutes.
    Here's the link to the latest herring announcement from Fish and Game to help you sort it all out.

Suspect's Interview Played in CommSta Murder Trial
Wednesday, 16 April 2014

 

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP)

           The man charged with gunning down two co-workers at a Coast Guard communications station in Kodiak told an FBI agent he couldn't explain why it took so long to get home after discovering he had a soft tire on his pickup the morning of the shooting.
           FBI agent Kirk Overlander interviewed James Wells following the murders of Richard Belisle and James Hopkins in April 2012.
           In recordings played Wednesday, Wells said he left for work, stopped to check the tire and drove home.
           A security camera recorded Wells driving past the nearby Coast Guard base and driving in the opposite direction 34 minutes later.

           Asked to explain what took him so long to return home, Wells tells the FBI agent he didn't have a reasonable explanation.
