Disclosure laws top Soldotna agenda

Posted: Wednesday, June 24, 2009

The Soldotna City Council has public hearings and action slated for three ordinances at tonight's meeting, scheduled for 6:30 p.m.

Topping the list of ordinances is a measure to ask Soldotna voters to exempt Soldotna officials from state financial disclosure laws, and instead establish city financial disclosure guidelines. Soldotna City Manager Larry Semmens has said the state's requirements "clearly discourage people" from wanting to serve as elected and appointed officials.

Also on the agenda is a measure to amend city code to more clearly define reimbursable and nonreimbursable expenses and to reflect current rates established by the federal government for city employees' business travel, and an ordinance to accept funds from the Alaska Police Standards Council for the purpose of police-related training.

Resolutions on the agenda include a measure to award a contract to the Alaska Public Entities Insurance Pool for property, liablitiy and workers' compensation insurance, and a measure to award a sole-source contract to Severn Trent Water Purification Inc. for a hypochlorite generation system as part of the Well House C renovation.

The council's consent agenda includes introduction of ordinances to:

* Rezone a lot in Dawn Glow Subdivision No. 2 to Limited Commercial;

* Accept grants from the Alaska Highway Safety Office for traffic enforcement and safety; and

* Increase revenues and appropriations in the Centennial riverbank restoration capital projeject fund to account for a state grant to install stairs at the Kenai River bridge.

A resolution on the consent agenda would authorize the disposal of outdated city records.
