    PREFACE

    The Codes contained in these volumes constitute a republication of the Anchorage Municipal Code of 1977 and the Anchorage Municipal Code of Regulations.

    Source Materials

    Source materials used in the preparation of the republished Anchorage Municipal Code were the 1977 Code, as supplemented through June 20, 1995, and ordinances subsequently adopted by the Anchorage Municipal Assembly. The source of each section is included in the history note appearing in parentheses at the end thereof. The absence of such a note indicates that the section was adopted for the first time with the adoption of the 1977 Anchorage Municipal Code. By use of the comparative tables appearing in the back of the Anchorage Municipal Code, the reader can locate any section of the former Codes, and any subsequent ordinance included herein. The Anchorage Municipal Code and the Anchorage Municipal Code of Regulations are arranged by titles and chapters and the various sections within each chapter have been catchlined to facilitate usage.

    Notes which tie related sections of the Anchorage Municipal Code together and which refer to relevant state law have been included. A table listing the state law citations and setting forth their location within the Anchorage Municipal Code is included at the back of that Code.

    Chapter and Section Numbering System

    The chapter and section numbering system used in the Codes is the same system used in the Alaska Statutes. Each section number consists of three parts separated by a decimal. The figure before the first decimal refers to the title number and the following figure refers to the chapter number, and the figure after the second decimal refers to the position of the section within the chapter. Thus, the second section of chapter 1.10 may be numbered 1.10.020. Under this system, each section is identified with its chapter, and at the same time new sections can be inserted in their proper place by using the decimal system for amendments. For example, if new material consisting of one section that would logically come between sections 6.10.010 and 6.10.020 is desired to be added, such new section would be numbered 6.10.015. New chapters may be included in the same way or may be placed at the end of the title embracing the subject. The next successive number shall be assigned to the new chapter. New chapters or titles may also be included by using one of the reserved numbers.

    Page Numbering System

    The page numbering system used in the Codes is a prefix system. The letters to the left of the dash are an abbreviation which represents a certain portion of the volume. The number to the right of the dash represents the number of the page in that portion. In the case of a chapter of the respective Code, the number to the left of the dash indicates the number of the chapter. The following are typical parts of codes of ordinances, which may or may not appear in this Code at this time, and their corresponding prefixes:

    Indexes

    The indexes have been prepared with the greatest of care. Each particular item has been placed under several headings, some of which are couched in lay phraseology, others in legal terminology, and still others in language generally used by local government officials and employees. There are numerous cross references within the indexes themselves which stand as guideposts to direct the user to the particular item in which the user is interested.

    Looseleaf Supplements

    A special feature of this publication is the looseleaf system of binding and supplemental servicing of the publication. With this system, the publication will be kept up-to-date. Subsequent amendatory legislation will be properly edited, and the affected page or pages will be reprinted. These new pages will be distributed to holders of copies of the publication, with instructions for the manner of inserting the new pages and deleting the obsolete pages.

    Keeping this publication up-to-date at all times will depend largely upon the holder of the publication. As revised pages are received, it will then become the responsibility of the holder to have the amendments inserted according to the attached instructions. It is strongly recommended by the publisher that all such amendments be inserted immediately upon receipt to avoid misplacing them and, in addition, that all deleted pages be saved and filed for historical reference purposes.

    Acknowledgments

    This publication was under the direct supervision of Alyce A. Whitson, Supervising Editor, and Connie Timmons, Editor, of the Municipal Code Corporation, Tallahassee, Florida. Credit is gratefully given to the other members of the publisher's staff for their sincere interest and able assistance throughout the project.

    The publisher is most grateful to the Municipal Assembly which authorized this project, to Richard L. McVeigh, Municipal Attorney, December 1990 through 1994, who initiated the project, and to Mary K. Hughes, Municipal Attorney, who brought the project to its successful conclusion. The publisher is also most grateful to Lejane Ferguson, Municipal Clerk; Ann W. Resch, Deputy Municipal Attorney; William A. Greene, Assistant Municipal Attorney; Lawrence A. Jones, Department of Law Administrative Officer; Susan Livingston, Paralegal; Rosemary Slisz, Administrative Officer; Frances Dunn, Senior Office Assistant; and Theodora Watty, Business Licensing Clerk of the Municipal Clerk's Office for all of their dedication, diligence and invaluable assistance in completing the editorial process and finally to the numerous municipal officers and employees participating in the editorial conference for their cooperation and assistance. It is hoped that the efforts of all those involved and those of the publisher have resulted in a Code of Ordinances which will make the active law of the municipality readily accessible to all citizens and which will be an invaluable tool in the day-to-day administration of the municipality's affairs.

    ANCHORAGE MUNICIPAL CODE HISTORY

    The City of Anchorage ("City") and the Greater Anchorage Area Borough ("Borough") were unified by home rule charter and consolidated into the Municipality of Anchorage September 16, 1975. Anchorage Municipal Charter section 19.07 required a new Code of Ordinances to be enacted by September 1, 1977, which would choose between conflicting city ("CAC") and borough ("GAAB") codes, enact new ordinances where necessary and modify former codes to fit the new unified structure. Until the new code was adopted both the CAC and GAAB Codes continued in effect with the mayor choosing between them when they were in conflict (Charter sections 19.05 and 19.06). The Anchorage Municipal Code ("AMC") was officially adopted by Anchorage Ordinance ("AO") No. 77-299 effective August 30, 1977. That ordinance lists those borough and city code sections and ordinances adopted as the new code for the unified municipality. A few titles enacted as part of the new AMC, notably titles 16 and 21, were quickly reconstructed. Title 21 was reenacted on November 22, 1977, by AO No. 77-251, just 1½ months after initial adoption of the AMC.

    Unfortunately, in the process of consolidating the former codes, the history notes to the new AMC sections did not always reference the ordinance numbers, but referenced either the CAC or GAAB Code numbers, in some cases the AMC section numbers (as was the case in the immediate November 1977 rewrite of title 21) and even inserted the reference "(new)" if the particular section came from new ordinances passed between September 16, 1975, and September 16, 1977. Further, even AO No. 77-299 which initially adopted the new AMC and AO No. 77-251 rewriting title 21, were not cited in the history notes. These history notes have not been changed to insert citations to either of the latter AO's in this republication of the Code because the extensive and time consuming nature of that effort did not appear to be warranted by the relatively infrequent necessity of researching legislative history prior to unification in September 1977. Consequently, AO No. 77-299 has been reprinted in its entirety at page XV in this republication.

    Strictly speaking, the enacting ordinance for the new AMC repealed all prior ordinances including those that, by their terms, were applicable before or after a specified date, e.g. AMC section 16.90.040, but referred to "the effective date of this ordinance" or "the date this title/chapter was adopted" without having specified the exact date. Since the bulk of the initial AMC simply adopted selected sections of the prior codes, these effective date references were carried over into the new AMC. It is clear that a primary focus during the initial consolidation of the codes was to preserve the law governing at the time of unification, except when it was necessary to choose between the CAC and the GAAB, e.g. mobile home regulation (AMC section 21.50.170). Because the new AMC carried over the inexact references to the "effective date of this ordinance (or title or section)" a new date or period of applicability (or inapplicability) was created. Some of these dates created grandfather rights or instituted new requirements or prohibitions that did not apply prior to the specified date. To permit the adoption of the new code to change those dates automatically was clearly not the intent when the new code was adopted. Accordingly, those initial dates have been retained.

    THE ANCHORAGE MUNICIPAL ASSEMBLY ORDAINS:

    Section 1: The Code entitled "Anchorage Municipal Code" published by Municipal Code Corporation consisting of Titles 1 through 30, each inclusive, with Titles 13, 18, 20 and 22 not containing any ordinances but reserved for future use, is hereby adopted.

    Section 2: The provisions appearing in the chapters and sections of the Code adopted in section 1 of this ordinance, so far as they are the same as those of the "Anchorage Municipal Code of 1977," adopted by AO No. 77-299 on August 30, 1977 as amended by subsequent ordinances or of ordinances existing at the time of adoption of this Code, shall be considered as a continuation and re-publication thereof and not as new enactments.

    Section 3: Nothing in the Code adopted in section 1 of this ordinance or this ordinance adopting the Code shall affect any ordinances in effect but not codified in this Code and all such ordinances are hereby recognized as continuing in full force and effect to the same extent as if set out at length in the Code and as on file in the municipal clerk's office.

    Section 4: The compiled municipal regulations codified as the "Anchorage Municipal Code of Regulations", printed and published by the Municipal Code Corporation of even date with the Anchorage Municipal Code adopted by this ordinance and contained in the printed volumes of the Anchorage Municipal Code, are hereby approved as the official codified publication of Anchorage municipal regulations in effect as of September 12, 1995.

    Section 6: By contract or by municipal personnel, supplements to the Code, the Anchorage Municipal Code of Regulations and the Charter shall be prepared and printed whenever authorized or directed by the municipal attorney. A supplement to the Code, the Code of Regulations and the Charter shall include all substantive permanent and general parts of ordinances passed and regulations approved by the municipal assembly or adopted by initiative and referendum, and, as to the Charter, which are approved by the voters, during the period covered by the supplement and all changes made thereby in the Municipal Code, the Code of Regulations and the Charter. The pages of a supplement shall be so numbered that they will fit properly into the Code, the Code of Regulations or the Charter and will, where necessary, replace pages which have become obsolete or partially obsolete, and the new pages shall be so prepared that, when they have been inserted, the Code, the Code of Regulations and the Charter will be current through the date of the adoption of the latest ordinance included in the supplement. In preparing a supplement to the Code, all textual portions of the Code which have been repealed shall be excluded from the Code by the omission thereof from reprinted pages. When preparing a supplement to the Code, the codifier (meaning the person, agency or organization authorized to prepare the supplement), subject to prior approval by the Municipal Revisor of Ordinances, may make formal, non-substantive changes in ordinances and regulations and parts of ordinances and regulations included in the supplement, insofar as it is necessary to do so to embody them into a unified code consistent with the format of the Code adopted by this ordinance.

    Section 7: Ordinances enacted after October 24, 1995 and regulations approved after September 12, 1995 that amend or refer to ordinances that have been codified in the Code or regulations that have been codified in the Code of Regulations, shall be construed as if they amend or refer to like provisions of the Code or Code of Regulations respectively.

    Section 8: This ordinance shall become effective immediately upon passage and approval by the Assembly.
