Attempt to stop Anchorage indoor tennis facility


by Your Alaska Link News Team

Anchorage Assemblyman Bill Starr is trying to stop Mayor Dan Sullivan's administration from spending on a new indoor tennis facility.

Starr says when the administration proposed replacing outdoor courts, it didn't make clear it intended an entirely new tennis center in the Turnagain neighborhood.

Mayor Sullivan says it only makes sense to replace the outdoor courts with ones that can be used 12 months a year.

Reports say the money comes from the $2.5 million parks bond approved in April 2013.

On Tuesday the Assembly will consider Starr's proposal to stop spending money on an indoor tennis facility.
