Kenai council opens 2014

The Kenai City Council passed one city ordinance and three resolutions at its first meeting of 2014 Thursday night.

 

The council approved a travel grant for the sum of $3,000 to the Institute of Museum and Library services for two staff members to attend a training conference through the Alaska State Library.

The council also passed one resolution to allocate $8,000 from the city budget for the purchase of email archiving software, and another resolution awarding the lowest bid of $29,990 to Westside Flooring to replace the carpet in City Hall.

Resolution 78, which supported the Alaska Board of Fish proposal that requested a prohibition of 24-hour operations at the Salmon Fishery, was voted on and approved with council member Mike Boyle voting nay.

Boyle said his only issue with the resolution was the city taking a stand on what hours the fishery would be open.

“I’m all about fish protection and somebody needs to make those decisions, but I don’t think it should be a bunch of politicians, it should be scientists,” Boyle said. “It’s a little issue but sometimes you have a philosophy and just go with it.”
