Anchorage mayor submits budget

Posted: Wednesday, October 02, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Mayor George Wuerch has unveiled a budget that calls for a nearly 3 percent increase in city spending next year.

The $281 million dollar spending plan announced Tuesday falls just below the city's spending cap.

The city Assembly will go over the budget and decide what, if any, changes should be made.

Wuerch says his budget would put 13 new police officers in schools, fund operations of a new fire station in east Anchorage, add bus service to the airport and keep libraries open longer.

The mayor's budget hinges on the Assembly's support for a plan to shift responsibility for a $2.5 million dollar water bill from the fire department to the city's water utility.
