Each day this week KMXT took a closer look at the Kodiak Island Borough’s capital improvement projects priority list, focusing on a few of the eight items each day. Tonight that list will be before the Borough Assembly as a resolution and they will vote on whether or not to submit it to Governor Sean Parnell and the Alaska Legislature.
Another resolution on tonight’s regular meeting agenda requests the governor include $100 million in his FY 2015 capital budget to go toward a vessel replacement fund for the Tustumena. That request was originally included in the assembly’s CIP list, but Kodiak’s Representative Alan Austerman suggested that a resolution might serve the borough better in stressing the need for a new Tustumena class ferry.
Tonight’s meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. in the borough assembly chambers and will be broadcast live on KMXT. Public comments are accepted at the beginning and end of the meeting, and limited to three minutes per speaker.
