3 AAC 110.300. Best interests of state

In determining whether dissolution of a city is in the best interests of the state under AS 29.06.500 (a) or 3 AAC 110.280, the commission may consider relevant factors, including

(1) the extent to which the city is providing services, receiving revenue, and incurring debt;

(2) whether a government or organization other than the state is willing and able to provide all services and facilities necessary to meet the needs of the community;

(3) whether dissolution of the city is likely to endanger the health, safety, or general welfare of residents in or near the city proposed for dissolution;

(4) the effect that the proposed dissolution will have on the harmony of relations among residents of the city proposed for dissolution, and between the residents of the city and others residing near the city;

(5) the social and economic impacts of the proposed dissolution on other communities in the state;

(6) the effect of the proposed dissolution on the long-term stability of the finances of other municipalities and the state; and

(7) circumstances identified by the commission reflecting the legal standards and principles that guide commission action in furthering the development of local self-government with a minimum number of governmental units.
