On Tuesday night, the Bethel City Council postponed action on a tax exemption for rental property owners. The measure would allow exemptions to cover utilities, specifically fuel costs. The new language in the tax code outlined four requirements to obtain an exemption, but met with some pushback from city administration. City Attorney Patty Burly has pointed out that the proposed new language may be problematic because it creates a specific exemption solely for landlord/property owners.

Over the past year the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation has slowly taken over the state's role in approving travel for Medicaid care. YKHC hopes that creating a department dedicated to that task will reduce the frustrations of area clients trying to deal with the state-run system. KYUK’s Christine Trudeau sat down with YKHC representative Tiffany Zulkosky last week to go over the details outlined in a recent press release on the changes that created the Medicaid Travel Office.
