Beyond the public hearing and expected action on the fiscal year 2008 budget, the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly will hold several other public hearings.
One involves a proposal to increase a telephone surcharge to cover costs of the E911 emergency dispatch system. Ordinance 2008-13 would increase the current $1.15 monthly charge to $1.40 on all land line and cell phone numbers.
Ordinance 2007-14 would authorize Mayor John Williams to execute a new lease and operating agreement with Central Peninsula Hospital Inc. The current agreement terminates Dec. 31, 2008, but the borough and hospital have been negotiating changes to the agreement addressing concerns of the borough. The two entities have reached a tentative agreement. Tuesday will be the first of two hearings.
Also on Tuesday’s agenda are several measures up for introduction that would:
· set the mill levies for the borough and service areas;
· authorize participation in the Teacher, Health Professional, and Public Safety Housing Grant Program;
· endorse the work of the Anti-Gang and Youth Violence Policy Team;
· allocate $76,620 in capital project funds for a security system at the borough administration building;
· approve a mutual-aid agreement between Bear Creek Fire Service Area and the Lowell Point Emergency Service Area;
· appropriate $56,000 to address building deficiencies to property leased to Cooper Landing Emergency Services Inc.;
· appropriate funds to reimburse Central Emergency Services and Nikiski Fire Service Area for helicopter training;
· authorize sale of four parcels of borough land by sealed bid;
· authorize exchange of land near Woods Drive with the Frank and Doris Lane family trust;
· authorize exchange of land along Kalifornsky Beach Road with Gormley, et al; and
· authorize retention or sale of real property obtained by the borough through tax foreclosures.
