At Tuesday night's Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting, there will be a public hearing on an ordinance to establish a vote-by-mail option for elections in the Borough. Communities all over the country are considering vote-by-mail due to the current public health crisis and because of concerns about free and fair elections. Assemblymember Willy Dunne of Fritz Creek introduced this ordinance because of a recommendation from a Borough stakeholder group that issued a report in January of 2019.

Homer City Council passes accessibility resolution

City of Homer

The Homer City Council passed a resolution Monday aimed at making Homer a universally accessible city. Council member David Lewis proposed the measure, which encourages businesses and the city to work towards improving accessibility for those with disabilities.

Several public comments were given in support of the resolution, but there was some pushback on the council. The panel passed a resolution last year, forming the city’s Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance Committee. The resolution tasked the committee with forming a transition plan for the city.
