Mayor suggests new plan for Kachemak-Selo school

    In an effort to create some movement on building a new school in Kachemak-Selo, Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce is asking the state legislature to restructure the school funding received from the state. In a letter last week to Superintendent John O’Brien, Pierce suggested building a combination school/community hall in the small Old Believer village instead.

The Kenai Peninsula Borough will soon be moving into the age of “remote sensing.” The assembly approved a nearly-half-million-dollar no-bid contract with a company to provide the borough with “Pictometry Oblique Imagery” for the purposes of property assessment. Currently, the borough assesses real property from the ground. The contract with Bellevue-based EagleView will be for photographing private property from the air.
Nikiski Assemblyman Jessie Bjorkman, however, felt that was an invasion of privacy.
