Anchorage’s local government includes five so-called enterprise activities which, via fees and other payments, earn the revenue necessary to fund their operations. While their workforce is still comprised of municipal employees they do operate somewhat independently of the remainder of city government.
My colleague Bill Starr, who chairs the Assembly’s Budget & Finance committee, asked me to do some extra review of the enterprise-funded budgets. To that end we will meet on Monday, November 1, from 1 – 3:30 pm at City Hall in room 155 to go over those respective budgets in more detail than a later work session will allow. Here’s the schedule:
Some of the topics we’ll discuss include longer-term budget projections, capital budgets, and expected near- and long-term rate changes (and how those revenue will flow through those operations). It should be an interesting discussion and I’ll try to provide a summary after the fact!
