The Kodiak City Council will meet for a regular meeting tonight, but not at the regular time. The meeting, which is normally held at 7:30 p.m., will be held at 6 p.m. so council members can make it to the Borough Assembly’s work session at 7:30 p.m.
The city will make a case to the borough assembly for a land transfer out by the landfill, where the city hopes to start making the better quality Class A compost. A lesser quality Class B compost is currently being made at the landfill. The city manager, some staff members and two council members recently returned from a trip to Washington and Idaho where they toured a handful of composting facilities similar to what Kodiak hopes to build. The site the city wants to build a composting facility on, however, is owned by the borough.
This will be the city’s second attempt at a land transfer with the borough for composting purposes. A few months ago the borough assembly voted against a similar land transfer because neighbors to the property weren’t given the same information that was included in the ordinance and the city didn’t have the necessary permits for the area.
Once again tonight’s city council meeting will be at 6 p.m. in the borough assembly chambers. Following that the borough assembly will hold a work session in the borough conference room at 7:30 p.m.
