All but one of the four city bonds won voter approval Tuesday night.

Prop. 1 asked for $37 million for various road improvements around town. Voters approved this.

Prop. 2 asked for $250,000 for a new ambulance. This proposition also passed by a narrow margin.

Prop. 3 asked for $1.15 million to replace two fire engines. Voters approved this.

Prop. 4 asked for $932,000 to replace buses, engines and transmissions, among other public transportation improvements in Anchorage. Voters defeated this by a 52-48 margin.

A separate proposition asked voters about swapping 2.77 acres of city land for 2.73 acres of private land near Sisterhood Park by the Spenard Recreation Center. Voters approved this by a wide margin.

Anchorage has about $1.2 billion in bond debt, with another $110 million in bonds approved by voters for various projects but not yet sold.
