Kodiak city manager retiring

Posted: Sunday, June 04, 2000

KODIAK (AP) -- Kodiak's city manager is stepping down after five years.

In a letter to the mayor and council members, Bill Jones said he was retiring for personal reasons.

''It's going to be a big loss to the community, we're really going to miss him,'' said Mayor Carolyn Floyd. ''He's been a wonderful manager, worked well with the council.''

When the Kodiak City Council hired Jones in June 1995, he inherited the management of an $8 million city account from former city manager Gary Bloomquist. Since then, the city coffers have grown to nearly $11 million.

The city is finishing $23 million worth of capital improvement projects that include construction work on the boat harbor and replacing the city playground.
