Proposition 9:

Anchorage voters are being asked to amend part of the municipal charter, which restricts the writing of parking tickets “only to members of the Anchorage Police Department,” so Whittier Police Department officers can be allowed to write tickets in Girdwood. Whittier police have been contracted to patrol Girdwood since 2016, amid shifting jurisdictions over the Seward Highway; APD units now patrol the Seward south to the Kenai Peninsula but don’t cover Girdwood itself.
