If you’re from Anchorage, you know it’s a great place to live, work, and play. If you care about Anchorage, and want to keep it great for tomorrow, you’ve come to the right place.
On April 3, 2018, the Municipality of Anchorage is asking voters to approve bonds to help keep our community safe, keep our roads working, and make our green space better. Many of these projects will fix infrastructure that is failing or broken.
We need these improvements to support our economic growth and prosperity.
In the past, we’ve been able to rely on state funding to help with similar needs.
But today’s fiscal climate is different. With state funding low due to oil prices, funding for projects is scarce.
The good news is that bonds are affordable. Interest rates are low. Bond funding will allow us to leverage other funding sources, like state and federal funds, so our dollars go further.
The impact on individual property taxes will vary depending on the service areas in which the property is located. For the bonds on this April’s ballot, the estimated maximum increase for each $100,000 of assessed value is $8.66 for debt service and $3.08 for increased operating and maintenance costs.
It’s the right time to invest in our future and support bonds so our Anchorage tomorrow stays great. Please join us by mailing in your ballot on or before April 3, and vote YES.
