City to Discuss Fisheries Analyst Contract at Work Session

At the Kodiak City Council work session tonight, the council will discuss the same contract which had been under examination at Kodiak Island Borough Assembly meetings up until its final decision last week. The assembly had been split over whether to extend its year-long contract with the fisheries analyst, Heather McCarty, who it shares with the city. At the assembly’s last regular meeting, it amended to extend the contract six months at the suggestion of Assemblyman Dennis Symmons. Assemblyman Mel Stephens was the only dissenter on the amended contract offer, which passed 4-to-1.

Tonight, the city will discuss the issue.

Also on the agenda is an ordinance to allow accessory dwelling units, sometimes called granny flats, in certain residential districts in the Kodiak Island Borough. The ordinance would change borough code to list accessory dwelling units under a permitted use within those districts.

In addition to discussion on those issues, the council will hear a department overview from the Chief of Police and discuss city investments policies. The work session will be in the Kodiak Public Library Multipurpose Room at 7:30 p.m. and is open to the public.
