Boro agenda light last week


The Sept. 1 meeting of the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meet was fairly short, ending before 8 p.m.

The assembly heard the quarterly report for the KPB School District from Superintendent Sean Dusek. His report is available on the borough website, but the highlights include a slight rise in enrollment and graduation rates, and the announcement of an Oct. 15 community presentation on the upcoming budget year, which will be offered on the web this year.

In his report, Mayor Mike Navarre reported that the Health Care Task Force would meet at 6:30 p.m. the third Wednesday of each month.

The assembly enacted the ordinance appropriating $521,100 from the state for the Community Revenue Sharing Program. Mark your calendars for the community meetings: Sterling at the Elementary School 6 p.m. Sept. 23, Bear Creek at the Fire Station at 6 p.m. Sept. 25, Lowell Point 9:30 a.m. Sept. 26, Moose Pass at 1 p.m. Sept. 26, Hope at 3 p.m. Sept. 26 and Cooper Landing 7 p.m. Sept. 26.

The assembly also appropriated funds to the Diamond View Estates utility special assessment district near Homer and appropriated approximately $3 million from the Central Peninsula Hospital’s plant replacement and expansion fund, and declared their intent to issue revenue bonds to pay for equipment for their specialty clinic building.

Several ordinances were introduced on the consent agenda, including payment of $9.5 million from the state for PERS liability, appropriating state funds for an additional E911 dispatcher for state parks, and funds from the South Peninsula Hospital’s operation fund for purchase of additional property. These will have public hearings at the Sept. 15 meeting in Homer.

The annual assembly meeting in Homer is at 6 p.m. Sept. 15 in Homer City Council chambers. As always, the agenda and videos of our meetings are available at I can be reached at 491-0828 or The Seward Annex office and Seward Bear Creek Flood Service Area offices in Seaview Plaza are great sources of information as well.
