Anchorage voters will face fewer bond measures than usual in the city’s annual May election, the Anchorage Daily News reported.
The Anchorage Assembly Tuesday voted to send four general obligation bond measures to voters, totaling less than $40 million.
The measures will include $37.1 million for road construction, $1.2 million for fire department improvements, $250,000 for an ambulance, and $932,000 for public transit.
Assembly and city officials decided to limit their bond requests because of voters’ concerns about the economy, the newspaper reported.
Last year, voters faced bond measures totaling $141 million, and rejected three-fourths of that amount.
The Anchorage school district, after voters rejected both its bond measures last year, decided not to propose any this year, according to the Daily News.
