Assembly delays vote on tax proposals
The Anchorage Assembly voted to delay their decision to put a tax proposal on the April ballot at their regular meeting Tuesday night. A long line of public testimony and a similarly long line of amendments led to a discussion that won’t be over until the next regular meeting on January 28th.
“A two-week delat is certainly something we can do and meet an April deadline,” said Assembly member Meg Zalatel, who represents Midtown. “However I hope we can pause at least that long to consider all of these amendments to the proposals, and the feedback we received from the public.”
The Assembly finished working through all of the proposed amendments, coming out of the meeting with three edited versions of the proposals that the public and the Assembly can take the next two weeks to consider.
