AS 29.60.350. Safe Communities Program.

(a) To implement the revenue sharing for safe communities program, there is established in the department the safe communities program consisting of the base amount account and the per capita account. The legislature may appropriate to the safe communities program during each fiscal year a total amount equal to or greater than 30 percent of the income tax revenue received by the state under AS 43.20.011 (e) for the previous fiscal year. Unless otherwise provided in the appropriation, the department shall allocate money to the base amount account and the per capita account in the same proportion as under AS 29.60.360 and 29.60.370 in state fiscal year 1997.

(b) The department shall distribute money appropriated for the safe communities program to each municipality on an annual basis as provided in AS 29.60.360 and 29.60.370 and as adjusted under AS 29.60.373 . A municipality may not receive payment until it submits to the department a resolution approved by the governing body of the municipality that requests the money. Distribution of money appropriated for the safe communities program to all municipalities must be made on July 31 of the state fiscal year for which the appropriation to the fund is made. A municipality that incorporates after July 1 of a state fiscal year is not eligible for a distribution under this section until the following state fiscal year.

(c) Money from the revenue sharing for the safe communities program distributed to a municipality shall be used by that municipality only for the following services in the following ranking of priority:

(1) police protection and related public safety services;

(2) fire protection and emergency medical services;

(3) water and sewer services not offset by user fees;

(4) solid waste management;

(5) other services determined by the governing body to have the highest priority.

(d) Subsection (c) of this section may not be construed to require a municipality to fund all requests it receives for services in a category with a higher ranking of priority before funding services in a category with a lower ranking of priority.
