Wolf to Attempt to Repeal Streams Ordinance…Again

Posted: March 25, 2013 at 11:59 am

An ordinance to repeal the borough’s anadromous streams protection ordinance is set to be introduced to the borough assembly during next Tuesday’s meeting. The ordinance was sponsored, by freshman assembly member Kelly Wolf…

 

Asm. Wolf(K-Beach): “Well the intent is, is to, put back to the assembly to do what the people asked, and repeal 2011-12.”

 

With the administration’s task force continuing their town hall meeting process, even after this ordinance would be introduced to the assembly, we asked Wolf if he thought this would be premature…

 

Asm. Wolf(K-Beach): “No, I don’t believe so. I think the task force, especially after the town hall meeting in Nikiski; I think the task force has buried their head. Assembly is hearing from an overwhelming number of people, as well as the task force, they want this thing repealed, or to start over. It was developed, in short and sweet terms, the dark of night, introduced without proper notice, and I think that the people deserve to have their voices heard. Whether I believe that this ordinance is going to be moved forward to a public hearing, I don’t. I think there’s a certain number of individuals on the assembly that want anything to do with repealing, I don’t think they don’t care what the people want or think.”

  • Tim says:

    This needs to be repealed.

  • Alaskan Mike says:

    The public should be outraged! Like Wolf said, 2011-12 needs to be repealed! The Administration and Assembly have once again dug their heals in against the people they represent.

    2011-12 is a complete OVERREACH. It uses a broad brush to impose additional and unnecessary regulations on an unreasonable spectrum of property owners and borough lands throughout the ENTIRE borough…that are ALREADY strictly regulated and managed by a barrage of State, Federal, and Municipal agencies.

    Wake up! This ordinance isn’t about protecting salmon habitat (we already do that). It is a back-door approach to borough zoning, and controlling more of your private land. It’s duplicate, redundant, and in addition to. It is supported by a prejudiced Administration who selected their own Task Force and then gave them a prejudiced task and prejudiced scientific information. And who’s going to pay for this new borough entity that’s required to monitor, enforce, and manage it?…YOU.

    Tell all of your Assemblymen to appeal 2011-12!
