Rotary Presentation -- January 23, Luke Hopkins

 

Luke Hopkins is the current Mayor of the Fairbanks North Star Borough.  He came to speak with us today about the current status of the Borough, and to answer questions we would like to ask.

 

Mayor Hopkins brought a powerpoint presentation, and included handouts for us.  The presentation and handouts provided a great deal of information about the borough.  Financial accounts, grants, budgets, organization, taxation, comparisons to others regions of the state, and much more.

In addition to this, there were assessments regarding future risks that the borough manages, including economic stability, energy prices, military presence, flood control, public facilities wild fires, infrastructure services, emergency services, and mandates (both federal and state).

The Mayor's presentation was thorough and intriguing, as well as very educational in regards to our community and its future challenges.
