ABSTRACT
Voters in Anchorage approved $210 million in general obligation bonds on April 1, 2003 that will finance schools, roads, and emergency service equipment. The Anchorage School District will need around $95 million from the recent authorizations and may also sell previously authorized debt, according to Janet Stokesbary, the district's chief finance officer. The largest measure, Proposition 11, authorized $125.5 million for major renovation and replacement of schools. Approximately 61 percent of voters approved Proposition 4, authorizing $40 million in GO bonds for roads and drainage.
