The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly met Tuesday night for a five-hour marathon meeting in Soldotna.
A sales tax ordinance was approved by unanimous consent, which makes the borough one of 23 communities in the state that are organizing to collect sales taxes from online purchases. It has been quite an undertaking, said assembly President Kelly Cooper.
“I just have to take a minute to thank our finance director for the, I don’t know how many months that this commission has been working on this. It’s been extremely complex,” Cooper said.
The assembly postponed action on an ordinance brought by the mayor, to allow for gated communities in the borough.
