It will be a busy night for the Kodiak City Council. The council will discuss a number of topics during tonight’s work session, including its capital improvement projects list and composting.
Like the borough, the city submits an annual wish list to the governor and state legislature. The hope is to get a share of the state’s capital funding to put toward local projects included on the CIP list. The council invited Kodiak’s Juneau delegation, Senator Gary Stevens and Representative Alan Austerman, to tonight’s discussion to help paint a realistic picture of legislative funding this year.
Also on tonight’s eight-item agenda is a discussion of the Maritime Museum’s Thelma C project. For the past few years the museum worked to restore the fishing vessel Thelma C, and hopes to make it a permanent fixture in the downtown area.
Composting will also be a topic of conversation tonight, with a couple council members and the city manager providing an update about a recent trip to Washington state and Idaho. The group toured composting facilities to help generate ideas for the one the city hopes to build in Kodiak.
Other points of discussion tonight will be the Monashka pumphouse design, a memorandum of agreement for the ferry dock terminal and an update from the harbormaster about a consultant for Horizon Lines contracts.
The work session starts at 7:30 p.m. in the borough conference room.
