Mayor Eberhart is making communication with you a top priority. Once a month we aim to publish the ”Mayor’s Note,” a newsletter covering topics and events the City is involved in. Communication is best when it’s a dialogue, so please contact us if you have ideas, suggestions, or comments. We have a “Suggestion” button on the site and you can always contact me at 907.459.6793. Thank you, Mayor Eberhart.
I am sad to hear of the loss of life of two members of our community. My prayers go to the families of those who died in the fire, to the person who was seriously burned, and to those whose lives have been uprooted. I applaud and am grateful, however, for the fast and effective rescue efforts of firefighters from the City of Fairbanks and other fire departments. They saved the lives of many persons.
As a community, let’s pitch in to help in the best way we can, by making donations to the Red Cross. The statewide link for the Red Cross allows for local donations: www.redcross.org/ak/anchorage
