Kodiak Assembly Sets Lobby Goals for Juneau
In advance of the Kodiak Island Borough Assembly members traveling to Juneau next week to lobby for Kodiak Island projects
The assembly also passed two resolutions that are legislative priorities that came out of the Southwest Alaska Municipal Conference assembly members attended Feb. 9-11.
One resolution supports the extension of the Alaska Coastal Management Program, which is set to expire July 1 unless the state legislature takes action to continue the program. The borough is also joining the Alaska Municipal League in calling to strengthen the management program by reestablishing a coastal policy board and bringing back air and water quality issues in the coastal management review process.
Another resolution calls for the Legislature to fully fund the state’s Energy Rebate Program.
“My husband and I were one of the first people to get one of these energy grants,” Assembly member Judy Fulp said. “We got a new furnace and did some other things to our house. It’s made a big difference in our fuel bills. I’d say in the winter, $400 a month. So I really would encourage anybody and everybody to get in on this.”
