Assembly approves new spending

Posted: Tuesday, June 24, 2008

JUNEAU - The Assembly approved about $4.6 million in extra funding Monday to cover higher electrical costs and other various operating costs for city departments for this fiscal year's budget.

Assembly members approved putting $1.9 million to cover the increase in electricity and fuel costs of different city departments.

The streets division said it needed an extra $352,000 to cover costs due to unusually cold weather and above average snowfalls.

The airport said it needed $81,800 for increased expenses due to an increase in the cost of de-icing chemicals.

The docks and harbors department said it is anticipating a $96,800 shortfall due to unbudgeted overtime.

User fees and other city budgets will be used to cover the increased spending.
