MAYOR INVITES PUBLIC TO PROPERTY TAX RELIEF DISCUSSIONS

ANCHORAGE-Monday, October 28, 2013:

Mayor Dan Sullivan invites Municipality of Anchorage residents to weigh in on the topic of property tax relief at four different events in the coming weeks. He has a question for the people of Anchorage, Eagle River, Girdwood and in between: "Should the Municipality examine ways to provide property tax relief by changing the current mix of taxes or leave things as they currently are?"

"Property taxes are the largest source of revenue that pays for city services. It’s important that tax payers come to the table and share their ideas. I’ll be listening for possibilities and solutions on potential diversification," said Mayor Sullivan.

Each year the city’s costs increase and Mayor Sullivan’s Administration has worked hard to cover them by becoming more resourceful and finding efficiencies. But the Municipality is reaching a point where paying for increased costs for services that the community has come to expect primarily will fall on property tax payers.

RSVP is required (space is limited):

  • Tuesday, Oct. 29 - Anchorage Senior Center at 5:45 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Oct. 30 - Eagle River Lions Club at 5:45 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Nov. 13 - Bayshore Club House at 5:45 p.m.
  • Thursday, Nov. 14 - Embassy Suites at 5:45 p.m.

Doors will open at 5:15 at which time you can get the materials to review and have a complimentary light dinner. The event will start promptly at 5:45.
