Council Looks to Add $880K to Budget Spending

When the Kodiak City Council meets tonight, the new fire chief will be given the oath of office. Jim Mullican was given the job permanently last week. He had been acting chief since Rome Kamai was suddenly suspended in December.

The council will also hold a public hearing and a vote on the supplemental appropriation to the current fiscal year’s budget. A supplemental budget is to make up for changes in income or spending since the budget was finalized last year. This year’s one supplemental is for $879,753. 

The council will also approve its budget goals for the new fiscal year that begins July 1st. 

A resolution supporting the Alaska Municipal League’s request to the state that it commit to $60-million annually to the Revenue Sharing Program will also be considered, though the vote may prove futile given the billions of dollars the state is short this year.

And finally, in executive session, the council will give City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski her evaluation and contract review.

The meeting starts at 7:30 in the assembly chambers of the borough building, and will be broadcast live here on KMXT.
