Currently the <br /> endowment was up to $2.1 million and growing. Barth listed the grants awarded in 2011 and <br /> encouraged the community to utilize the "Pick, Click and Give" program with the Alaska Permanent <br /> Fund. <br /> Carl Norman supported the home porting project of Coastal Villages. He did not support <br /> the Friends of the Jesse Lee Home project. He felt it should be left to the state to build it. <br /> Mark Kulstad felt it was inappropriate for the council to endorse any entity in competition <br /> with city projects. He did not support the Friends of the Jesse Lee Home on the state priority list. <br /> Tim McDonald gave a brief report as the City's Cook Inlet Aquaculture Association's <br /> representative. He stated one problem the association was looking at was they only had 1000 of wild <br /> fish that went to Bear Lake. They released 175 pairs into the lake and stripped the rest for eggs. <br /> There was a question of using fry to stock other lakes. It was the city's responsibility and he felt they <br /> should have a strategy and if they wanted the salmon derby to continue, they should do something <br /> this year to get stocking in the next cycle. <br />
