Assembly overrides mayor's library veto

Posted: Thursday, December 17, 2009

ANCHORAGE - The Anchorage Assembly voted to override one of Mayor Dan Sullivan's vetoes to the city budget.

In an 8-2 vote, the assembly reinstated $50,000 for Anchorage libraries in an effort to keep branch libraries open longer.

Sullivan had vetoed that additional money last month, sticking to the $75,000 Anchorage libraries received in the city's compromise budget. The veto override brings that total back up to $125,000.
