Choose one of the following plans for Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly representation:
______ Plan 1: 9 single member districts
______ Plan 2: 13 single member districts
DESCRIPTION OF APPORTIONMENT PLAN: State law requires that the Kenai Peninsula Borough assembly adopt an apportionment plan for borough assembly representation, after the 2000 federal census.
Kenai Peninsula Borough Ordinance 2001-25 meets this requirement by adopting and presenting to the voters for selection two representation and apportionment options, both of which are different from the current plan. The plan receiving the most votes will be put into place after the election. Either plan will result in some or all of the current assembly terms and seats being abolished beginning with the regular borough election in October 2002. Assembly members elected in 2002 will serve staggered terms of one, two and three years. The current assembly apportionment plan contains 9 districts with one member elected from each district.
The first option, Plan 1, would consist of 9 districts in the borough. Each district would have one assembly member, elected by the voters of that district.
The second option, Plan 2, would consist of 13 districts in the borough. Each district would have one assembly member, elected by the voters of that district.
The propositions must be approved by a majority of the voters voting on them at the election in order to take effect.
