Title 3 . Commerce, Community, and Economic Development
Chapter 130 . Small Municipality Energy Assistance Program
Section 42. Population determination

3 AAC 130.042. Population determination

(a) For purposes of municipal entitlements under AS 29.60.010 - 29.60.080, state aid to volunteer fire departments under AS 26.60.130 , and state aid to unincorporated communities under AS 29.60.140 , the director will annually determine the permanent resident population, of the previous calendar year, for each municipality in the state. No later than January 15 of each calendar year, the director will mail to each municipality the determination of the municipality's previous calendar year population.

(b) The determinations under (a) of this section will be based upon the following census or estimate that indicates the most recent population of the municipality:

(1) a census of the United States Bureau of the Census;

(2) a head count census conducted by the municipality in accordance with 3 AAC 130.043(c) ;

(3) a housing unit method population estimate conducted by the municipality in accordance with 3 AAC 130.043(d) ;

(4) an estimate by the Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

(c) If there is a conflict between or among the population results, for the same calendar year, of a census or a population estimate listed in (b) of this section, the order of precedence for determination of population is the order in which the censuses and population estimates are listed in (b) of this section.

(d) When a city is within a borough, a head count census or housing unit method population estimate conducted by the borough may be used to determine the population of the city. For the purposes of (c) of this section, a head count census or housing unit population estimate conducted by the borough within which the city is located takes precedence over an estimate by the Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

(e) If a population determination under this section for a city within a borough conflicts with the population for that city indicated in a head count census or housing unit population estimate upon which a population determination for the borough is based, the conflict is automatically appealed to the commissioner. Both municipalities are parties to the appeal.
