Voters to consider propositions on Tuesday's ballot

Posted: Friday, October 01, 2010

Next Tuesday is voting day!

Today we'll show you the ballot propositions you should expect to see on next week's ballot.

All voters in the borough will be asked to make a decision on two propositions.

Proposition No. 1 concerns selling bonds to repair school roofs.

Borough Proposition No. 1

EDUCATIONAL CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT GENERAL OBLIGATION BONDS

Shall the Kenai Peninsula Borough borrow up to $16,866,500 through the issuance of general obligation bonds?

Yes -- approves the sale of bonds only if, and to the extent that, such project qualifies for at least 70-percent debt reimbursement from the State of Alaska.

No -- opposes the sale of bonds.

Proposition No. 2 asks voters if they want to retain the borough's current strong mayor form of government or switch to hiring a borough manager.

Borough Proposition No. 2

ADOPTING A MANAGER PLAN OF GOVERNMENT TO BE EFFECTIVE AFTER THE 2011 REGULAR ELECTION

Shall the Kenai Peninsula Borough adopt a manager plan of government, effective upon certification of the regular October 2011 election, where the chief administrative officer is a manager appointed by the assembly instead of the current form where the elected mayor runs the borough administration?

Yes -- adopts a Manager Plan of Government after the 2011 regular election.

No -- means we retain the current form of government.

Soldotna voters will see one more measure on their ballots, concerning library funding.

City of Soldotna Proposition No. 1

General Obligation Bonds for the Expansion of the Joyce K. Carver Public Library and Related Capital Improvements

Shall the City of Soldotna incur debt and issue general obligation bonds in an amount not to exceed Two Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($2,500,000) to finance part of the cost of planning, design and construction of the expansion of the Joyce K. Carver Public Library and related capital improvements?

The bonds shall be secured by a pledge of the full faith and credit of the City (Ordinance 2010-016).

Sunday we'll recap candidates on the ballot for borough assembly, Kenai mayor and Kenai and Soldotna city councils.
