Kodiak Alaska Designated a “Coast Guard city”

KODIAK, Alaska – The Coast Guard designates Kodiak a “Coast Guard City,” in honor of the extraordinary support provided by the Kodiak City and Borough to the men and women of the Coast Guard. Kodiak is only the eighth city in the United States to receive this prestigious designation.

Mayor Carolyn Floyd of the City of Kodiak and Mayor Jerome Selby of the Kodiak Island Borough received proclamations designating Kodiak a “Coast Guard City” during a ceremony at Coast Guard Integrated Support Command Kodiak Saturday.

The “Coast Guard City” designation was created by public law in 1998 to recognize those cities that have made special efforts to acknowledge the professional work of Coast Guard men and women assigned to their area. The other designated Coast Guard cities are Grand Haven, Mich., Eureka, Calif., Mobile, Ala., Morgan City, La., Wilmington, N.C., Newport, Ore., and Alameda, Calif.
