Trash Contract Vote Delayed Once Again
Friday, 02 April 2010

            Thursday night the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly was scheduled to vote on a contract for trash collection with Alaska Waste. Instead, the vote on the contract, plus the vote on an ordinance amending the borough waste management code, were postponed until April 15th.

            The meeting started with public comment opposing the contract because of the discrepancies with trash collection costs between the different parts of the community.

            After the meeting went into public hearing over the proposed code changes, citizen comments by Mel Stevens generated discomfort among some of the assembly members. That led to a motion by Assemblywoman Pat Branson to postpone the vote.

            Because the code changes were a requirement for passing the solid waste collection contract, and because of concerns over the variations in fees, the contract vote was also postponed until April 15th.

            A representative from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game Commercial Fisheries Office in Juneau was in Kodiak Wednesday to discuss the status of the Crew Data Collection Project with fishermen here. Without legislative direction, the department is dropping the project.

            Jan Conitz is a research analyst with the department, and has worked on the project for several years. Speaking at the Kodiak City Council meeting Wednesday night, she says on the surface, it seems like a simple task - to link crewmembers with specific fish landings.
