Kenai seeking operator for city dock

Apr 2, 2018

The City of Kenai is scrambling to find a new operator of the city dock, after being informed the past vendor will not be returning and not getting any response from others.

“And I notified Harbor Commission of this the other night that our concessioner that has been operating the dock for the last couple of years, Copper River Seafoods, is not interested in pursuing that again this year. We did not find that out until a couple of weeks ago," City Manager Paul Ostrander explained to the Kenai City Council.

Repairs to Kenai city dock approved

There was another strong earthquake felt in Kenai almost exactly two years ago, though much closer than Tuesday morning's 7.9 event, meaning it caused a whole lot more damage in the Central Peninsula.

Some of that damage occurred to the Kenai City Dock during the January 24th, 2016, 7.1 earthquake.

City Manager Paul Ostrander explained to the Kenai City Council the administration’s plan to repair the damage, using funds left over from two other, completed projects.

Paul Ostrander, Kenai city manager, and Christine Cunningham, assistant to the city manager, talk about doing business in Kenai.

The public will now have access to far more detailed records of Kenai City Council work sessions and the joint get-togethers it has with city commissions after passing a resolution recently authorizing the audio recordings of those proceedings.
