ANCHORAGE, Ak-- Of the nine propositions on the ballot, only proposition three is causing some controversy.
Proposition three asks tax payers for about 5.5 milliong dollars for improving, the loussac library, relocating Mulcahy Stadium, and safety improvements to City Hall.
"It would mean reparing capital project within the community. A big one is 2.7 million dollars to repair the library it's much needed money and that's the biggest one on the bond proposition," Elvi Gray-Jackson, Anchorage Assembly Member."
As to why the library is in dire need of the money, Gray-Jackson had this to say.
With Loussac Library being top priority on the bond, Gray-Jackson says shes unsure as to why the slim majority has voted no.
"The only thing I can think because usually they respond to capital improvements parks are the ones that we've kept our fingers crossed. There was a lot of controversy with the tennis court issue, and I'm thinking that maybe some citizens with in our community feel like we don't support libraries," Gray-Jackson.
With the current race leaning towards "no", members feel it could negatively effect their legislative request.
Other places Proposition three would improve are the Chester Creek Sports Center parking lot and the Anchorage Golf Course.
