Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce was absent at the meeting on April 2, but previously spoke with KSRM News regarding the request for additional funding from the district: “I’ve written a letter to the school district sharing all of our numbers with them, and we wrote a letter to the employees within the borough explaining to them that should the$2.4 million dollar additional funding request be approved by the assembly that there are consequences. I’m laying it out to the assembly as well, we are putting a strong fiscally responsible plan together so that services can continue.” A resolution for the request for additional funding was introduced at the borough assembly meeting on April 2. There will be a public hearing on the request for $2,423,955 in FY19 from the borough at their meeting on April 16.

In the request from the district, the additional funding would allow the school district to retain some of the non-tenured staff for FY20, as well as provide a cushion in the event of possible state reductions in funding.
