How do the gears of governmental bureaucracy work in Anchorage? Who calls the shots when deciding which social programs to fund or how schools are run? How can residents weigh in?
All these questions and more will be explored during a six-part community series titled “Understanding Municipal Government.”
The first presentation is set for Thursday, July 22, 6-7:30 p.m. The online events aim to provide an overview of how the different aspects of city government work together in the running of Anchorage. Each week will include presentations by community leaders or municipality employees.
The series is presented by Alaska Literacy Program, Catholic Social Services, Refugee Assistance and Immigration Services, Anchorage Peer Leader Navigators and the Anchorage Public Library
