- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan will make his case Friday for a $10.5 million recreation center that includes six indoor tennis courts. The Anchorage Daily News reports three Anchorage Assembly member have concerns about how the city obtained a state grant for the project in the Turnagain neighborhood. They want the project delayed. Assemblyman Bill Starr says the recreation center request was not reviewed by the assembly. He says the money showed up in a state capital budget line item titled, "Project 80s Deferred and Critical Maintenance," that included money to pay for fixing hockey rinks. Sullivan says he expects to address assembly concerns Friday at a work session. He says assembly members will be provided a detailed description of the funding, the center's uses and its operating costs.
