Assembly moves through its work

The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly held public hearings on two ordinances at its Tuesday night meeting.

 

Neither item prompted comments from borough residents.

The first ordinance concerned a staffing change at the Soldotna Public Safety Communication Center as well as a funding appropriation.

The assembly unanimously approved to create a new shift supervisor position and eliminate a dispatch position. The passage of the ordinance also OK’d increasing funding by $6,000 for the remainder of the fiscal year and $32,000 in years following that to make up the difference in position costs.

The second ordinance considered by the assembly was the updating of the 2010 Kenai Peninsula Borough All-Hazard Mitigation Plan.

The assembly unanimously voted to delete the 2010 Seward/Bear Creek Flood Service Area Flood Hazard Mitigation Plan and adopt a 2013 version a flood mitigation plan for the same area. Updating mitigation plans is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, according to the ordinance.
