Anchorage Assembly OKs $4.4M for tennis courts

ANCHORAGE — The Anchorage Assembly voted Tuesday night to spend $4.4 million on a recreation center with indoor tennis courts.

The Alaska Tennis Association had originally asked the state Legislature for $7.2 million to build the courts in the Turnagain neighborhood in west Anchorage. President Allen Clendaniel says he’s disappointed at the lesser amount but glad to finally have a decision on the funds.

The Anchorage Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1cQE80A ) a dispute over the tennis courts had locked up $37 million in state funds the state legislators appropriated to the municipality for a variety of projects.
