City Asks For Water Conservation
Received from the Kodiak City Manager's Office on September 25, 2015
The City of Kodiak is asking commercial and residential customers to conserve water usage 
The water level at the Monashka reservoir, the City’s primary water containment system, is just under 50% full. We must rely on rainfall to fill the reservoir. Persistent weather patterns have limited rainfall and changes aren’t expected for some time.
Please think of ways to conserve water usage in your daily routines. You might opt to take a quick shower and not a bath, turn the water off when brushing teeth, postpone washing your car, or make sure your taps aren’t dripping or open and running unattended.
Conservation efforts must continue until we receive substantial rainfall and this situation is reversed.

    Searchers Friday afternoon found the body of a Kodiak man missing since Tuesday night. Thirty-seven year old Kevin Rogers was found dead in the Cliff Point area, near where his car was spotted Thursday.
    Searchers from Kodiak Island Search and Rescue, the Coast Guard and Troopers did not find Rogers before calling off the search because of darkness Thursday evening, but found his body early Friday afternoon.
    Troopers say no foul play is suspected at this time, but Rogers' body is being sent to the State Medical Examiner's Office. Next of kin have been notified, and and the investigation into his death continue.

KPD Seek White Ford F150 Involved in Hit-and-Run
Friday, 06 February 2015
Jay Barrett/KMXT
    The Kodiak Police Department has a lead on the vehicle involved in a hit and run outside the high school Wednesday night. Police Chief Rhonda Wallace said the suspect vehicle has been narrowed down to a Ford F-150 pick up, made between 1997 and 2003, and according to eyewitness reports, is white.
    The accident injured Brent Watkins, who had to be medevac'd to Anchorage with injuries to his pelvis, ribs and head. A family friend says he is alert and resting at an Anchorage hospital.
    KPD officers closed off Rezanof Thursday morning to search for more evidence in the light of day and found enough pieces of the vehicle to identify it as an F150 of that vintage. Wallace says the passenger side headlight is broken and there could be other damage to the front end. If anyone has seen the vehicle in question, they are urged to call the KPD at 486-8000 or crime stoppers at 486- 3113.

Hit-and-Run Injures Man on Way to P&Z Hearing
Thursday, 05 February 2015
Jay Barrett/KMXT
    Folks heading to the Planning and Zoning Commission hearing last night at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium had to detour around Rezanof Drive after a hit-and-run accident closed the road for a significant amount of time, starting around 6:25, as the injured pedestrian was treated by emergency medical personnel from the Kodiak Fire Department.
    Police Chief Rhonda Wallace said her department is still investigating the collision, which injured Brent Watkins, a former member of the P and Z Commission who was on his way to the hearing. Wallace says Watkins was reportedly hit by a white pick up truck, which then fled the scene.
    A family friend said Watkins suffered injuries to his head, ribs and pelvis, and is resting at an Anchorage hospital after being medevac'd out last night. She said he may be sent on to Seattle for further treatment.
    According to the Borough Clerk's office, Watkins served on the Planning and Zoning Commission from January 2005 to February 2013.
    Chief Wallace said KPD investigators will likely close Rezanof near the high school for a time again today to search for more clues to the identity of the hit-and-run vehicle and its driver.
