Kenai raises some fees

Rents for some residents of Kenai’s Vintage Pointe senior housing will rise, as well as fees at the city boat launch during the personal-use fishery.

The Kenai City Council passed, with several amendments, a resolution to implement fee schedule changes recommended by city administrators in Kenai’s Fiscal Year 2016 budget. 

Launch fees during the personal-use fishery will go from $25 to $35, and daily parking fees during the personal-use fishery from $15 to $20. 

The $35 increase in Vintage Pointe rent is part of a 2013 plan to gradually bring the price of the senior apartments to market rates, as determined by a licensed appraiser every five years, according to a memo by Kenai Finance Director Terry Eubank.
