Posted: Friday, September 03, 2010

ANCHORAGE - Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan says the city will come up at least $18 million short next year if it maintains the current rate of spending for services.

At a briefing Wednesday at City Hall, he said he's considering budget cuts and may ask union workers to give up hours and pay raises.

The Anchorage Daily News reports Sullivan became mayor in July 2009 on a platform of controlling spending and property taxes. He cut this year's spending by $20 million.
