Boro Assembly meets in Seward


When the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly makes its annual sojourn to Seward next week, the agenda will be light with many items presently slated to be passed on by consent. The April 15 meeting will feature public hearings for two ordinances. The one that may generate the most debate is Ordinance 2014-11, which concerns adjustments to the payment and benefits that KPB Assembly members receive.

The finance committee of the Assembly will meet at 3:30 p.m. to consider spending funds on oxygen generators instead of heating and ventilation at South Peninsula Hospital. The ordinances authorizing that redirection of funds, Ordinance 2013-19-33, will be the subject of the other public hearing later that evening.

According to East Peninsula Assembly Member Sue McClure, KPB Mayor Mike Navarre is considering a 0.25 mil rate increase to the Seward Bear Creek Flood Service Area assessment, halving the 0.5 mil hike sought by the SBCFSA board. However, that will make its way into his budget to be presented at the following Assembly meeting on May 6 only if the current Legislature agrees to appropriate additional project funds to the SBCFSA,

The subject, among other local concerns, will be open to comment in the Seward City Council chambers at the main session beginning 6 p.m.

KPB Mayor Mike Navarre will be available for informal discussion and questions with community members from 9:30 a.m. until noon at the KPB Seward Annex in the Seaview Plaza, 302 Railway. Individual appointments may be scheduled to discuss issues that impact the area, as well as the Borough by calling Michele Aranguiz 907-714-2157.

Across the street at the Seward Community Library Museum, the Seward Planning and Zoning Commission will conduct a competing hearing toward finalizing new transient, roving and mobile vendor ordinance language to be forwarded to the Seward City Council. That special meeting takes place at 7 p.m.
