Mat-Su—This week on the Mayor's Minute podcast, Matanuska-Susitna Borough Mayor Larry DeVilbiss gives an overview of an extensive list of subjects addressed at last night's Assembly meeting.
• The budget was adopted on Monday with a new areawide mill rate, 9.691— the same rate as last year except for the increase to pay for school and road bonds passed by voters last October. Mayor DeVilbiss submitted three vetoes, which were overturned.
• How raising the exemption threshold on an inventory tax and streamlining business licenses will help business.
• An approval for a new Borough building annex for the public to assemble and workspace for employees.
