Special Assembly Meeting Tonight

Due to some borough assembly members and staff being out of town, last week’s regular Borough Assembly meeting was canceled, but the governing body is planning to make it up tonight (Monday).

A special meeting is scheduled at 6:30 for the assembly, with a lone agenda item, reviewing a letter to the Alaska Board of Fisheries, asking them to re-evaluate a recent trip limit placed on the Pollock fishery. The board of fish modified the vessel limit on pollock fishermen, reducing the trip limit from 300,00 pounds to 200,000.

The assembly’s letter states that local pollock trawlers and seafood processors are worried about potential negative impacts of vessel trip limits on their operations and the Kodiak community. It asks the board to reject the proposed reduction. 

The special meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. this evening in the borough conference room. Public comments will be accepted at the beginning and end of the meeting, and the agenda packet is available on the borough assembly’s website.
