Borough Takes Steps Towards Fiscal Transparency

Borough Mayor Mike Navarre handed out a draft fiscal impact statement at last night’s meeting of the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly, to explain how Borough finances are faring with changes in legislation…

 

Navarre: “There’s been interest expressed in the fiscal impact of ordinances and items that come before the Assembly, so Mr. Chapman has put together kind of a draft fiscal impact statement, with some bullet points for your consideration and input.”

 

 

Navarre said the intention of the statement was to make the process as simple and straightforward as possible.

 

Navarre: “Oftentimes, the debates on the fiscal note took as long as the debate on the underlying legislation, so would hate to see that. The goal is to try to be transparent and talk about what the fiscal impacts are of legislation that’s moving through the Assembly, so look forward to your input on that.”
