Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly Member Jill Schaefer was arrested this week. 

 

The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly approved a new budget for the upcoming fiscal year. Tuesday night’s vote came in front of a backdrop of drooping state finances and some uncertainty about the future of the peninsula’s economy.

 

That uncertainty was cause for reluctance to find new revenues by way of taxes. Assembly Member Dale Bagely’s proposal to roll back a sales tax exemption on nonprepared food items from nine months to six found much the same opposition it did when he introduced a similar measure a few years ago.
