Tennis courts

What would you like to do about the proposed tennis courts for West Anchorage? The issue has deadlocked the Assembly for months.

Here are five options:

• Give the money back.

• Take the appropriation and use part of it to buy the Alaska Club just off Bragaw and fix its courts and make any other repairs.

• Commit $4 million to the tennis courts, as Bill Starr wants to do, and the rest to ice arena upgrades.

• Commit either $7.2 million (Tim Steele) or $7.7 million (Mayor Sullivan) and build the center next to the Dempsey Anderson ice arena in Turnagain.

• Turn the tennis courts decision to the voters as Amy Demboski proposes.
