We are physically located in the L92 Building in Downtown Anchorage. Our offices take up the entire 4th floor.
Our office uses one main telephone line, (907) 271-2809, and you will usually get a live person; however, during Council meetings our voicemail system will take over. If you need immediate assistance, you may prefer to email one of our staff directly (administrative staff are in bold). To learn more about Council staff responsibilities, click here.
