           After a pair of cancelled work sessions last week, it’s back to business for the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly. The assembly will meet for its rescheduled special work session tonight and review the borough’s 2014 strategic plan as well hear a presentation on social media. Also on tonight’s agenda is a discussion about the assembly’s upcoming trip to Washington D.C. A handful of assembly members recently returned from Juneau where they lobbied to the Alaska Legislature on behalf of Kodiak. The hope is to do something similar in D.C., and make sure Kodiak the radar of Alaska’s congressional delegates.
            Tonight’s work session starts at 6:30 p.m. in the borough assembly chambers.
            The assembly isn’t the only governing body meeting tonight. The City Council will hold a work session of their own at 7:30 p.m. in the borough conference room. On that agenda is a request to install a memorial plaque somewhere in the city that would commemorate victims of the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake. March 27th is the 50th anniversary of that 9.2 magnitude earthquake, which resulted in a tsunami that ravaged Kodiak’s coastline.
Also on the city’s agenda is a presentation from the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board about an urban community plan, as well as a packet review for Thursday’s regular meeting agenda.
