Strong Mayor Form of Government Possible in Mat-Su

Ellen Lockyer, KSKA – Anchorage

Matanuska Susitna Borough voters will be asked to decide on a new form of government come October.   At present, the Borough’s manager directs the day-to-day operations of the Borough.  This week, the Borough Assembly approved a measure that would allow voters to repeal the management style in favor of a strong mayor form of government.

Current Borough manager John Duffy has handed in his resignation, and will leave his job at the end of June.  Colberg says Duffy’s resignation prompted new discussions on the strong mayor question. The Borough is searching for a new manager.
