The Kodiak City Council will be busy with meetings tonight. First there’s the community meeting with board of fish members. Then they change locations for a regularly scheduled work session.
Tonight the City of Kodiak, Kodiak Island Borough and The Kodiak Chamber of Commerce are hosting a community reception for the Alaska Board of Fish which is meeting in town this week.
That reception-which will include as guest the new Alaska Department of Fish and Game Commissioner, Cora Campbell-will be held at the Kodiak Fisheries Research Center. It’s open to the public and takes place from 5:30 to 7:00 tonight.
The fish research center is the second big building on Trident Way-the one with the touch tank.
After wrapping up at the reception, council members will move across town to the new police station for a work session covering materials for Thursday’s regular council meeting.
Speaking of local fisheries, two items on the work session agenda deal directly with fish. There will be a discussion of the fisheries advisor for the city, and a discussion on the status of the Fisheries Industrial Technology Center. The University of Alaska School of Fisheries is debating whether or not to keep the F-I-T-C open. Council members have expressed an interest in getting details so the community can work together to keep the facility open.
Tonight’s work session begins at 7:30 at the new police station.
