A familiar subject — the anadromous streams ordinance — overshadowed the Oct. 9 Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting, again.
Three residents, including Fred Braun, a local Realtor and head of the Citizens 4 Responsible Waterfront Land Use, testified against the measure to the assembly while scores of residents sat in the audience holding up private property rights signs.
Nikiski resident Jack Porter said he thought the borough had neglected to properly inform residents of the ordinance’s impacts and called for a repeal and re-notice.
