Boettger: “I’m working with the city planning department to get together a cost estimate and determine if any other permitting would be necessary for that.”  Representatives from the BIK&S group spoke to the Kenai City Council at their meeting last week about the proposed trail.center_img Ben Boettger told the council that the grant would require a partial match from the city: “I’m working on an application for a grant from DOT that would largely fund a trail from the Kenai Spur/Bridge Access intersection to the Beaver Loop intersection. I am working on writing the DOT grant on behalf of the Bikes group. If the City of Kenai were to be a sponsor of the project it would be a minimum 9.4% match.”  The application to DOT is due by January 31. The city council is expected to introduce a resolution for the match at their meeting on January 16.last_img
