An EXTRA Talk of Alaska this week
It's getting closer and closer and schedules are getting tighter and tighter so this week the folks at APRN are adding an additional episode of Talk of Alaska so we can all be a little bit more knowledgeable when it's time to fill in the dots. The Governor makes his appearance Tuesday morning and the challenger, Bill Walker, makes his appearance Wednesday morning. Both live at 10am Tuesday and Wednesday this week (and both being repeated the same evening at 9pm on HD3)
 
Early Pledge Drive

tbt_banner.jpg

It's that time of year when we ask for your support to help us continue to bring you the bits of radio that help you stay an informed citizen (like the debates and election updates), an entertained listener (did you hear This American Life's new spinoff, called Serial?), and apprised of community events (the community calendar is always full this time of year).

 

Not only will you be supporting all of that goodness, but you'll also be entered into a drawing for a set of cross country skis OR a snowboard from Orion's Mountain Sports if you pledge by midnight on October 29! If you're a new member, you'll be entered into a special drawing for a photography package from Simply Lovette Photograpy -- just in time for the holidays.

 

Lots of great stuff this Fall for our pledge drive, including an entire day of retro radio on October 30 (and great food). Stop by, tune in, and pledge right here via the Donate Now button or by calling 486-3181. Thanks!

            The Kodiak City Council spent an hour behind closed doors last night conferring with its attorneys on the response to the potential for city employees to become unionized. A voter initiative may appear on the October 6 municipal election ballot asking residents if city employees may form a union.

            An ordinance outlining the city's response to that eventuality was drawn up in advance, appropriating 20-thousand dollars for a public information campaign and 20-thousand dollars for additional legal services. But after the executive session, the amount for the public information campaign was increased to 50-thousand dollars.

            The city's public information campaign ordinance is on the fast track, and according to Mayor Carolyn Floyd, it will come up for a public hearing and a final vote on Thursday.

            Did the Kodiak Island Borough assembly break its own rules and unfairly issue a sole source contract to Threshold? Or did the assembly simply accept the only proposal it received for recycling services? Those are some of the questions remaining after Threshold's contract was approved by the assembly and then challenged the next day.

            KMXT's Diana Gish has more.

School Bonds Advance, Non-Profits Funded
Tuesday, 21 July 2009

            Last week at its regular meeting the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly approved the introduction of two ordinances which would authorize the issuance of bonds for reconstruction and renovation of the Kodiak High School. Approving the introduction of the ordinances is a preliminary step. The ordinances now advance to the public hearing stage which will take place on August 6th. At that time the assembly will determine whether or not the measure will go to the voters in October.

            In other business, the assembly renewed its contract with Providence Kodiak Island Counseling Center to provide services to the school district for the upcoming school year. The contract, around 380,000 dollars, is the same amount as last year.

            Funding for non-profit organizations was also approved by the assembly for just over 265,000 dollars.

            At the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly's regular meeting last week, a contract was awarded to Threshold for recycling services in Kodiak. Before it was approved, Assemblywoman Louise Stutes raised questions about the language and the fairness of the contract. By the end of the meeting Threshold's $281,540 contract was approved and signed.

            By Friday morning a motion to re-consider the contract was filed by Stutes and Assemblywoman Judy Fulp.

            KMXT's Diana Gish spoke with Stutes about the re-consideration and her opposition to the contract.
