The Kenai Peninsula Borough administration is working to develop the budget for the upcoming fiscal year. We spoke to Borough Mayor Mike Navarre recently….
KPB Mayor Navarre: “We’ve gone though many of the departments so far, not all of them, but most of them and we’re keeping a pretty good control on cost increases. The service areas are going through their process and have had their meetings, most of them, where they’ve put their budgets together. We start those meetings I think next week with most of the service areas. And then once we get all that information together, of course, the school district has made a request for funding this year, which I think is $44.5 million, and we’re trying to figure out how everything fits in our overall budget.”
We’ll have more details on the budget process as they are made available.
