A Message from the Mayor

Welcome, and thank you for visiting Kodiak Island Borough’s web site. We hope that our site and the many helpful resource links contained herein answer your questions about our regional government and its services.

Kodiak Island Borough was created as a regional government to serve the public by financing and administering the primary functions of Education, Assessment and Collection of Taxes, Land Use through Planning and Zoning, Mental and Physical Health, and General Administration. Other services include Solid Waste Collection and Disposal, Parks and Recreation, Economic Development, and Animal Control. Our goal is to provide these services in an efficient and cost effective manner, and to strive for public satisfaction.

One of our mission’s guiding principals is the pursuit of excellence: to strive for continuous improvements and creativity and not be satisfied with “that’s the way we have always done it.” It is in this spirit that we present Kodiak Island Borough’s new web site. From property assessments to building permits – elections to recycling, we hope your search for Kodiak Island Borough information is efficient, successful, and enjoyable. As always your suggestions and comments are most welcome.

Mayor Jerrol Friend
